Robert Galvin Profile

Intro

Hello, my name’s Robert,and I am 15 years old. In this document, I will be typing a bit about myself.

I live in Mallow,Ireland and I go to Patrician Academy, which is an all boys school. I am in 4th year at the moment,and the year is fairly good so far. I have two dogs and two cats as pets,and I must say,most of my house is dedicated to music.

I play piano,guitar,and have a good few CD’s. Although my mom has stacks and stacks of Jazz CD’s. While I listen to bits n’ pieces of everything, my main area of interest is actually Metal. I think it is obvious I am one of the few(if any) people who do listen to Metal in my year.

As for sports, I do Taekwon-Do, kayaking, and swimming. Kayaking has stopped for a while, as the guy who organizes it is building a house for himself. I don’t have any interest really in keeping up with the current soccer league affairs,or watching the match of the day on television.

My interests are Art(most of all),music,playing computer games,reading books (of most genres,though I never have and never will read Twilight),watching Japanese animation(or “anime`),reading Japanese comics(or “manga“),and generally hanging around with my friends having a laugh.

For those of you who don’t know, manga is like a comic in graphic novel form. Just imagine this example below in black n’ white and taking up two pages X]

I look forward to chatting and working with you all!^^

The subjects I study(at the moment)are:

Art,English, Maths, Irish(REALLY don’t like this one=_=),Accounting, Biology, French, and Construction Studies(NO interest in this one =_=

The main building is quite old, and the extensions that were later built onto it aren’t as modern as you might think…..I personally did quite well in the Junior Cert, achieving 6 B’s, 2 C’s, 1 D, and 2 A’s ^^.In school, my favourite subjects are Art,History,and; I guess English.

Finally, I hope we all get along,mabye make a few new friends!=]

Project away I guess!=D

John Dennehy Profile

My name is John Dennehy. I live in Mallow which is a small town in Cork in the south of Ireland. I am 16 years old and I am in transition year. I go to school in the Patrician Academy in Mallow which is an all boys secondary school. We have 400 students in our school. I play soccer,golf and tennis at the weekend and I love playing soccer matches for my local club,Mallow United. I also enjoy playing piano and I have just began learning guitar. My favourite band are the Script who are from Dublin in Ireland. I studied music in school for my junior cert and i got a B.

There are 5 people in my family, my parents, my 2 sisters and me. I am the youngest in my family. My eldest sister studied music in college and is now a music teacher in a secondary school in cork. Whenever I’m on holidays I listen to my ipod which I update regularly. In our school music isn’t available as a class during school time so we have to stay behind after school to study it.

My favourite time of the year is when my family go on holidays. I’ve been to France 3 times and to spain once. I love France because it is an unreal country to visit as the weather is good and we study french as an exam subject so its an oppurtunity to speak it. I go to piano lessons once a week for an hour long session. I am on grade 6 in piano and I am doing my exam by Christmas. We are having a talent competition in our school this year and I am thinking of entering.

Glee is my favourite tv show and I really like the songs they do on it. I watch X Factor as well but I don’t think it’s as good this year as it was other years. My Dad likes Irish traditional music but I despise it apart from a couple of songs I play on the tin whistle.

In school we study loads of subjects like drama, irish, english, french, maths and a few others. There are 3 secondary schools in mallow. Our school is the main boys secondary school in mallow. St. Marys is an all girls secondary school which is up the road from us and then there is a mixed school on the other side of town. School starts at 9 and finishes at 3.50 monday and tuesday. On wednesday, thursday and friday we finish at 3.10.
