candle lights up the room,
falling down the side,
waving through the night.

When I hear
The Night Train to
train to Istanbul is a very dangerous train. People are supposed to have gone missing and
killed but it is the only transport to Istanbul. My brother lives there. He
has been living there for five years now. He wrote a letter to me last week saying
that he is very ill and he would really appreciate if I went over to him for a few
days. So I got ready and headed for the train station. I got on the train and
it seemed alright, but them the train started to move and all the lights switched off and
the noise from the engines was so loud you could not hear yourself shout but sometimes I
could hear people scream. Oh yes, I could hear people all the time. The
noise from the engines was so loud it was like a big explosion the whole time. At
one stage we slightly touched off a wall and sparks flew everywhere. That was the
only time for a few seconds I could see around me. All I got to see was a person
lying close to me on the ground and a woman with three children all shaking with
fear. But then it went pitch dark again. I didnt know if he or she was
alive or dead, but then suddenly I heard screaming. Across from me was where the
woman and her children had been sitting. I didnt know what to do so I just stayed
still. Finally after I dont know how many hours the lights come back on.
The train stopped. I looked around and across where the woman and her children
were. There was only one child left. The rest of the children and their
mother had disappeared and the person that was lying on the ground had also
disappeared. But when I finally got to my brothers he was all right. I could
not go home because I was too afraid of the night train to Istanbul.
Deardaoin. Tá an ghrian ag taitneamh. Tá na scammail sa speir. An t-earrach atá ann.
Tá se fuar freisin. Tá pluiríni ag fás sa ghairdín. Tá na h-éin ag
canadh. Tá bachlog ag fás ar an crainn. Chuir mé an bolgan sa ghairdín.
Tá lus an chroimchinn agus pluiríni sneachta agus sabhairin agus tiulip ag fás.
Is maith liom an tiulip. Tá uan sa phairc. Agus tá an sicín éan sa chrann. Tá na
lacha sa loch. Tá lao sa phairc. Tá an leanbh coinin ag sugradh sa phairc. Tá an h-éin
ag ithe na gcnonna.

A visit to Lapland
It was a
freezing cold day and my mother was cooking the dinner. My name is Sabrina and I
live in a town called Ballygobackwards. I know its a silly name but it is a great
place. I love winter here because it always snows and there is always about five
inches of snow. Last Christmas I got the biggest surprise ever. It started when I
entered a competition for a chance to go see Santa in Lapland. Time went past and I
said "It will probably be a stupid trip anyway". I just said that because I knew
I wouldnt win. Then one day I had a surprise in the post. I had
won! I got to go on a plane and a train and a bus, it was very tiring. As we
were on the bus to Lapland village my mother woke me up. As I looked up I saw bright
lights, it was Lapland. I quickly woke up and couldnt believe my eyes.
It was brilliant. At once a helper dressed as an elf brought us inside the building.
I could see elves making toys and the raindeers been groomed. The elf stopped and
said my parents will go unpack and I will go into Santa. When he opened the huge
door I saw Santa reading lots and lots of letters from lots and lots of children. I
got to tell him what I would like and also I got a tour. After a week we went home
for Christmas day. I got what I wanted and lots more. It was the best and I
only wish that this year could be as good as last year.

was going on holiday. He was going on a ship over to New York. The ship had a
swimming pool and McDonalds and his room was massive. He went to his sister
Aries. She was really posh. She always said "Get out of my way, you
little pest" but Paul didnt mind. In fact he would say "Shut your
mouth or I shall break your neck". They were really enemies to each
other. And when they were going home the ship bashed into a rock and lost the
bottom. Water was raising, windows were breaking. Paul didnt get a life
jacket. He found a dead person and took his. Then water came up. He ran as
fast as he could and fell. The water picked and floated him away. He quickly
grabbed on to a ladder and climbed up it. He found his family lying dead on the
floor. But his cousin got him and went off on a life boat and went home.
