Ambassador McGauran visited the elementary school Javorová alej 1 in Chorvátsky Grob on 5 October where he talked to the pupils about Ireland, its traditions, customs and language. The pupils gave wonderful performances of Irish dancing as well as of hurling, Ireland’s national sport. The children were especially interested in learning more about the Irish origins of Hallowe’en and how these were brought by Irish emigrants to the US in 19th century. The pupils asked many interesting questions about Ireland as well as about the similarities and differences with Slovakia. The Embassy would like to thank the school Principal, teachers and especially the pupils for the very warm welcome given to the Ambassador.
