Banna Ceoil

The ‘Banna Ceoil Scoile’ has grown steadily this year and we now have over 70 pupils attending the group, twice a week. We have established a link with two other school, Scoil Lorcáin in Monkstown and Gaelscoil na Cille in Ashbourne. We hosted both school for a mighty ‘seisiún’ in the first term and we went on ‘tour’ to Scoil   Lorcáin on the 27th   of February. We thoroughly  enjoyed ourselves with music, song and some sean nós dancing!

We participated in Córfhéile na Scoileanna again this year and took to the stage on Tuesday the 3rd of March in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght at 10.30am.  We played an arrangement of traditional music that lasted 7 minutes so we had been working very hard on this in the weeks prior to the performance.

In the third term we will move beyond the county bounds and head to Meath for another ‘mór-sheisiún ceoil’. We will also be putting on a concert towards the end of the year. Many thanks to the teachers who give so generously of their time and talents; Tomás MacUileagóid, Úna Ní Fhlatharta, Cormac Chambers Rícheal Ní Thiarnaigh.
