Third class pupils at Gaelscoil Bhaile Munna have spoken about what they think Halloween will be like this year and why it's important that they don’t go trick-or-treating.

"The Government are telling you not to trick-or-treat so you should listen to the guidelines," says eight-year-old Emily Meehan.

One of Emily's classmates is nine-year-old Brianne Dowling.

"If you're knocking on people’s doors and other people have touched the door you can spread Covid-19", says Brianne.

Although Halloween will be very different this year, the students were still excited about the day.

Eight-year-old Deborah-Grace Maduabuchi is looking forward to playing games with her sister at home.

"You can play hide the sweets, or even do trick-or-treat in you house. I’m doing that with my little sister," says Deborah-Grace.

Eight-year-old Noah Pigott doesn't mind not going trick-or-treating this year if it means keeping people safe.

"It’s keeping other people safe. It’s just sweets. Like you could just go to the shop," says Noah.
