    If I could time travel I would definitely go back to the year 1906, to meet my biggest inspiration - my Great Great Grandad, Jer Hayes.
    Jer was born around 1884 - 1886 in Thurles, Tipperary. He was a very talented Hurler. He always played back ( like I do ) as he was very tall. He grew up to be 6 foot 4 (193.04cm). Jer played for the best club in Tipperary, Thurles Sarsfields. He played full back for the Tipperary Senior Hurling Team in 1906 with his club team, the Thurles Blues. The captain of the team was Tom Semple. Semple Stadium in Thurles is named after him. Anyway, that year the Thurles Blues won the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final. I am very proud of that. Jer married a woman called Nora Callanan. My favourite Hurler ( apart from Jer ) is Seamus Callanan. Sometimes I wonder if we are somehow related. Jer died in 1932 due to a Hurling injury.
    Jer's story has alot more to it than that, but if I were to write it all out it would fill a whole book. Maybe I will write a book about him someday. But anyways, the reason I would travel back to meet him is because he is such an inspiration to me. He is the biggest reason that I am so passionate about GAA. I would absolutely love to meet him, although I know I can't. I hope to someday be like him and play for Tipperary and maybe be an inspiration to my own Great Great Grandchild.

    Hi I'm in 6th class ( last time I said 5th by accident)
    If I could travel through time I would love to go to Japan!
    Japan is a place I want to go so badly. Their culture is amazing!
    The clothes they wear and how their every day lives goes!!!
    Technology there is quite advanced there so I wonder what it was like before all of that happened.
    I want to see how the sake (pronounced as sack-eh) was made before, although I watched a movie where they spat at a cup and left there saliva for 2 years or something. It's quite weird.
    But I just love Japan so so much and I would do anything to go there!!!!
    I love how they celebrate different occasion and seeing what they do!
    It's really pretty when the hanabi and lit in the sky (hanabi=fireworks)
    The kimonos they wear is really pretty and are all different colours!!

    Awwwwwwww !!! This so cute ! I can't believe that the little cute joey was born in September 2017 and they have only spotted him/her now. I hope that it is a girl ! I wish there were kangaroos in Dublin zoo hopping around in the african Savana . It would be amazing to see a kangaroo in Ireland or a country near to Ireland. I was never in Austraila. A girl in my football teams dad is from austraila he is one of the trainers too. Her her dad her brother and her mam went to austraila for easter . GREAT ARTICLE !

    Poor little zepplin,after hearing that it really makes me realise how much more animals suffur than us humans,think about this.When us people get in a painful injury we can just go to the doctor or the hospital or anything like that,but for animals an injury can make a bigger difference to your life than just a bad memory.You can't catch prey,you can't run from your preedators,and it might get infected!Just think about that........

    I'm a massive united fan and it was huge tragedy to all the united players that were on board for horrible accident. But unite have built a sick team and players ever since the accident.
    We've had players like Best, Rooney Ronaldo, Ibra and scholes and lots of others.
    The most successful player out of them all is say is Rooney at united club captain and united all time goal scorer and England goal scorer and English captain.
    Great article.
    RIP too the united players.

    The Space Race was a competition between the Soviet Union and the USA.It was a very exciting time to see the developments from both sides. It would have also been incredibly nerve-racking as the cold war was happening aswell.

    The Soviets technically won the “Space Race” as they got a cosmonaut into space first, but America got to the moon first so it was really a draw. On the whole both countries won.

    The Cold war was a situation that arose after WW2 and sparked the space race. The cold war involved spying on the part of both countries, and a show of military and nuclear power. The threat of city destruction at any moment caused people to build bomb shelters to protect themselfs in case of nuclear strikes.

    The first man in space was a cosmonaut by the name of Yuri Gagarin who spent almost 2 hours in space. He did so on April 12th 1961 on the Vostok spacecraft. He was named hero of the Soviet Union the highest honour available to a Soviet man. The first woman in space was Valentina Tereshkova who made it up there on the 16th of June 1963. This was another great step to winning the space race.

    Then on the 24 of July 1969 Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and was the first man to walk on the moon. He was aided by Buzz Adlerian, the second man on the moon. They arrived on the Appolo 11 spacecraft.

    This competition was a great idea. I really enjoyed creating this post and I hope to see/take part in more things like this in the future. Thanks to clicnews for a truly ingenious idea.

    Scrap what I just said .-. I was looking through comments to find her name and her dog is called Tyson and I remembered that her username was something to do with Tyson. But now I just saw another person called TysonLover with the same profile picture! Maybe you can check their orders? So sorry to bother you on a Friday by the way :/ Thanks!

    Her username is Tyson3 and her profile picture is of dogs. I will ask my teacher to e-mail you. Also, I'm not exactly sure the name of the pens she ordered or how many stars they cost. Sorry, I might message her or check on Monday.

    We are sorry but the full site content is only available to registered CLiCNews users.

    CLiC News- is an outreach project within the Dublin Institute of Technology Access and Civic Engagement (ACE) Office.

    Our free news website, CLiCNews, was set up in conjunction with the DIT School of Media and another ACE Programme - Students Learning with Communities (SLWC) to provide a resource for those schools. We have subsequently made the site available to all primary schools and would invite teachers who are interested in using the site with their class to contact us. .

    We have set up a restricted site as we want to produce a safe environment for children and we believe at the moment that teachers and, more importantly parents, agree with this arrangement. In particular restricting CLiCNews in this way allows children to leave comments without feeling intimidated and ensures that they will only come in contact with their peers or teachers.

    Within the site news items are written by Journalist students from the DIT at a level which reflects the age range of the children and are presented in a way which precludes using graphical images and language which are unsuitable for young children.

    As an encouragement and aid to improving Reading and Writing skills the children are encouraged to comment on stories which have been published.

    All the children's comments are moderated and we rely on a small number of volunteers, with a teaching background, and ourselves in the office to check them and award stars to those with good grammar and content. We also provide facilities for registered teachers to download the children's comments from their school so that the content can be assessed offline. This is what distinguishes CLiCNews from other children's news content which is freely available.

    Within CLiCNews, as a parallel to published news items, we run various Polls and Competitions.

    For more information on CLiCNews and how you may apply to register your class please contact us HERE

    CLiCNews is run in conjunction with the Journalism Department of the DIT School of Media.
    This is part of an initiative organised through the Access and Civic Engagement Students Learning With Communities' programme.
