EUROPENA DAY OF LAN­GUAGES

To mark the Euro­pean Day of Lan­guages last Fri­day, 26 Septem­ber, St Thomas’ stu­dents played the an­nual French v Ital­ian stu­dents foot­ball match. Both teams were well bal­anced in terms of num­bers and tal­ent, with both the French man­ager Mon­sieur O’Cal­laghan and the Ital­ian supremo Sig­nor ’Tra­p­a­toni’ Gal­li­gan go­ing into the match pre­dict­ing that their side would come out on top. In the end, af­ter a pul­sat­ing match that saw each side trade the lead back and forth, it was those who called ’allez la France’ who were cel­e­brat­ing victory and it was French cap­tain Josephine Scully who lifted the ’EDL Cup’ for 2008.
