Harp Workshop

 

To mark Seachtain na Gaeilge, the Music and Irish departments collaborated to bring two popular traditional Irish musicians, Úna Ní Flanagán and Síobhan Mahon in last Tuesday. The workshop involved learning the history of the Harp and the Uilleann pipe, their origin,their place in both modern and early Irish culture. It was a great learning experience and we’d like to thank them both for their time.

First Year Basketball Success

The schools 1st year Basketball team are seen here smiling brightly, and
rightly so. This photo was taken after last Fridays match against
Moneenageisha Community School, Galway. The students showed great determination as the score was matched right up to the last three minutes of the game. The boys refused to give in and Shane Zukovicscored the winning basketball along with the support of his team mates playing an extraordinarly strong defense and Dillon Reynolds making the winning pass allowing shane to make a fast break up the court to finish with his now skilled drive and lay up.
The team are due to play their rivals The Presentation School, Athenry in the county final and are looking forward to putting in the time in training to hopefully give them the advantage over their equally skilled opponents. The potential of this teams future in schools basketball is exciting and I am looking forward to coaching such a dedicated, skillfull and all-round lovely group of students.

Having recently been sponsored by Lyons Financial services for their
new kit, which is seen being sported by the players in the photo, it
seems the generosity of Lyons has brought us not only a very ‘a’ la mode’, top quality kit but one full of good luck. The boys were delighted at the support and it appears they wish to say their thanks in the possible form of YET ANOTHER gold county medal for the school.
