To see the pride of students in their native traditions and language is just wonderful. So many students can find a voice through this event and all in attendance, students, staff, parents and guests, learn so much – it truly is an education for all. The day creates a real opportunity to celebrate both diversity and integration.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This year, students from 20 different countries will showcase their cultures to the entire school community. Each country will have its own ethnic theme with posters, pictures & items from that country creating a visual display on all that makes their individual cultures unique and interesting. Many of the students also wear traditional costume on the day. Delicious food, prepared and cooked by the students and their families, further reflects the intercultural theme. An afternoon of international music and dance, attended by the whole school, will bring the celebrations to an end. On March 9th in Thomond Community College as a response to a simple hello we expect to hear “yassou”, “ni hao” or “hola” amongst others!Students from local National Schools also attend on the day as will the Mayor of Limerick and local politicians and Doras Luimní.Regarding timing on the day itself students will be at stands for each different country all morning, 9.15 to 12.15. Visitors can move around the stands chatting to the students about their different nations. Many students will be in ethnic clothes and the displays are very colourful. At 12.30 lunch is served – this involves typical food from the various countries prepared by the students and their families.

Things got heated at PNC Park on Sunday as three Cincinnati Reds players and two Pittsburgh Pirates have been ejected following a benches-clearning incident in the top of the fourth inning.Reds manager David Bell, outfielder Yasiel Puig and relief pitcher Amir Garrett, as well as two Pirates relievers, Keone Kela and Felipe Vázquez, were ejected for their involvement in the incident. Bell immediately approached home-plate umpire Jeff Kellogg to argue the call, while players began pushing and shoving each other on the mound.Several players were restrained, and at one point, Yasiel Puig appears to draw his elbow back to throw a punch.

He crossed the plane of the goal line on the play where they said he was inches short. I am 100% sure the ball crossed the plane. Could have changed the whole ball game but then again that kid still would have ripped a 74 yard TD.

But once Wellingtonâ€™s Trevor Nance connected with Colin Reichenberger for a 15 yard completion with 8:48 in the second quarter, the Crusaders would go on to score 34 points. Stranger things have happened. After all Kansas City is one game up in the American League Championship Series.Â Wellington would cap an 80 yard drive when fullback Jaden Hines would scramble 27 yards for a touchdown to put the Crusaders on the board.Collegiate responded with a Austin Waddell to Jack Copher 26-yard touchdown pass. Back came the Crusaders, when another Hines run followed by a Reichenberger batting the ball in the air and making his own catch put Wellington into enemy territory. Three plays later Nance hit Connor Phelps on a 30-yard touchdown throw – narrowing the margin to 24-13 at the half.On Wellingtonâ€™s second half possession, it appeared as if the Crusaders were going to march down the field to score. But Collegiateâ€™s Jack Larsen made a sensational one-handed interception and return it to the Wellington 40.Wellington would eventually stop Collegiate with a Phelps interception in the end zone. Then Lane Beard would scramble for a long run into enemy territory. A few plays later he would do it again on a 21 yard run and Wellington was within three points 24-21.However, Collegiate struck back and scored on a Jaques Williams 13-yard touchdown.Still Wellington wasnâ€™t through. A Reichenberger 35-yard pass reception would take the Dukes into enemy territory and four plays later Beard was just inches short from going in.But then Wellington commits a horrendous 5-yard false start penalty and two incompletions later, Wellington had nothing to show for the impressive first part of the drive.Then Williams got loose three plays later and scrambled 74 yards for the score. This game was all but over, 38-21 with 5:31 to play.But not so fast. Wellington engineered a 66 yard drive in slightly more than two minutes that was capped by a Beard 3-yard touchdown.In a strange sequence, Collegiate recovers an onside kick but is penalized. The second kick, Wellington recovers. Then Reichenberger makes a pass reception to the 4. Nance then takes it into from the 2 and with 1:36 to play, the Crusaders were back within four, 38-34.On the next onside kick, Collegiate recovers and would run out the clock for the win.â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢Adam Condit left the field after the game on a gator with what appears to be a high ankle sprain.
