Feis Átha Cliath

15 Bealtaine 2019

The pupils of Gaelscoil Thaobh na Coille had a wonderful day in the Clasach in Clontarf on Wednesday the 15th May where they were competing in the Irish dancing feis ‘Feis Átha Cliath’. This is a figure dancing competition for primary schools. Our pupils competed in 3 competitions: the Four-Hand Reel for R3/R4, the Four-Hand Reel for R5/R6 & the Eight-Hand Reel for R5/R6.

64 pupils in all from 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th class in Gaelscoil Thaobh na Coille danced in the feis. The pupils and the teachers were delighted and excited to return to the school after being placed 1st in all three competitions, 2nd in two of the competitions, as well as numerous other placings in each of the competitions.

Míle buíochas to our wonderful múinteoir rince Nuala Ní Eochaidh for all the work she does with the children and for the extra time she puts into preparing the children for the Feis.
