Lá fuar feannaideach a bhí ann. Bhí caloga sneachta ag titim tríd an aer. Rith mé agus mo dheartháir síos an staighre agus amach go dtí an ghairdín. Thosaíomar ag súgradh sa sneachta. Rinneamar fear sneachta, bhíomar ag caitheamh liathrodí sneachta agus chuamar ag scáitáíl ar an leac oighir.
Go tobann shleamhaigh mé ar an leac oighir agus ghortaigh mé mo ruitín. Bhí an piain go húafasach. Chuir Conchubhar fios ar mo mhamaí. Ar nós na gaoithe bhí mamaí in aice liom agus bhí sí ag screadáil agus ag caoineadh. Chuir mamaí fios ar an t-ospideál. I bpreab na suil shroiceamar an t-ospideál. Scrúdaigh an dochtúir mo rutín. Dúirt sé “Tá do riutín briste.” Tar éis tamail chuamar abhaile. Ní raibh mé ró sásta.
Best of luck to the Ballindaggin boys Football Team who take part in the Rackard League Roinn C Shield final tomorrow at 2pm in Blackwater.
