All my bags are packed !!! My Dad is driving me to Horse and Jockey tomorrow and my godfather is meeting us and bringing me to Dublin. My Mum is flying into Dublin late on Thursday night on her way back from a work trip in Italy and on Friday morning we fly to Mexico City .
Maria Pizutti has packed the tapestries and I have our Zorro mascot who is going to travel with me in Mexico. Thank you to everyone who has helped me this week , I can not wait to land in Mexico! Please follow my travels and like and share my posts on Facebook .
My name is Isobel Lannin and I am 10 years old and am a 5th class student at Scoil Mhuire National School. When I was in 2nd class I was involved in a class project with Ms. Kennedy and a local artist Maria Pizzuti. We wrote the story of William Lamport, helped by Ms. Kennedy and Maria made beautiful tapestry panels based on our stories. Anyway, you might be wondering who is William Lamport??? Well, he is known as the Irish Zorro, born in Wexford, and thought to have inspired the Zorro character we know from the film. He supported the Mexican fight for independence and is very famous there. The Mexican ambassador to Ireland loved our tapestry so much that he has arranged for it to travel to Mexico City to exhibit it!!! I am going to bring it there (with my Mum) and make sure it is displayed properly. and hopefully will meet the generous sponsors, The Municipality of Huixquilucan (how do I pronounce this????), the Irish Minister Brendan Howlin and many other people. I am an ambassador for everybody who worked on this project and am going to make sure everybody in Mexico City knows about our school and village. Follow my posts for updates on my epic adventure.
