Welcome to Castleknock, Dublin 15.
Hi Karl and Sasha here. We live in Castleknock. There is a golf club in Castleknock. We have a very nice hotel beside it. We often don't get nice weather in Dublin. Today it is 7 degress and rainy. Check out our weather widget.
Its Doireann and Luke. We are going to tell you about Castleknock. Castleknock is a very big place. We are going to talk about transport. You can get a train in Castleknock. It comes from Sligo and passes through Maynooth in County Kildare. The stop before Castleknock is Coolmine. I get on the train here when I am coming to school! The stop after Castleknock is Ashtown. Luke goes horse riding here at the weekends! You can also get a bus in Castleknock. The route 39 goes to the city centre.

Hi Darragh and Albina here. Ireland is a small country in Europe. We are an island. That means we don't touch any other countries. We are learning about Spain at the moment. It touches France, Portugal and Andorra.
There is 32 counties in Ireland. Dublin is in the east. It is also the capital city. It has the biggest airport in Ireland. In Ireland we speak English. Irish is our national language and we love learning it in school. Saint Patrick is our patron saint and we celebrated his feast day on March 17th.
