Bodhrán Workshops


Elaine O’Connor & Helen McLoughlan ran bodhrán workshops for all the pupils (the naíonra children included) in the school in April. The workshops were held in the hall and all the pupils from Junior Infants to sixth class were given the opportunity to learn to play the bodhrán. The beating bodhráns and the sound of laughter and yelps of joy from the pupils could be heard throughout the school.


Elaine & Helen presented 2 pupils with scholarships to attend a term of their Bodhrán lessons in Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in Monkstown. Sadhbh Ní Dhraighneáin from R2 and Shannon Ní Mhóráin Ghallchóir from R4 were the two pupils who won the scholarships.
