The pupils of St. Patrick’s De la Salle BNS, Castlebar have been busy celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge. As part of their celebrations all of the senior classes took part in a Tráth na gCeist, which was both competitive & entertaining. Many classes did project work & art work showing off their knowledge of Irish. All week music of Irish artists was played throughout the school.

The school had a big day on Friday, March 10th when the Rose of Tralee, Aoibhinn Ní Shuilleabhain came to visit. Aoibhinn entertained the younger children with an enjoyable scéal ‘Múscaill a Renée’ She then visited the older classes where there was plenty of cómhrá as Gaeilge. The children had a lán ceisteanna for Aoibhinn regarding her year as a Rose.

We finished off the day with a lively ceolchoirm of traditional Irish music with Mr. McEvilly and his two companions, Tommy Doherty & Peter Duffy.
The following week the boys continued to practice all their tunes in preparation for the St Patrick’s Day Parade. Our pageant this year was bigger & better than ever.
