Someone Like Me

       img_0341    

           On Monday I went with my Mum and Sam to Dublin on the train and then we got a taxi to Farmleigh House. I was there for a prize giving for the ‘Someone like me’ art competition. I was the junior representative for County Clare. My picture was of me helping someone along a garden path to their wheelchair.
Farmleigh is a big beautiful old fashioned mansion in a large park next to the Phoenix Park. We were given food and drinks but the chocolate cake was delicious and the best!
We were all called up on stage one at a time to be given our prize and a plaque for our school and everyone could see our pictures on a big TV.
Finian McGrath, Minister of State for Disability Issues gave me my prize and talked to me.
Then we all went home on the train.
I had a great day out.
