Seachtain na Gaeilge

The classes were all very busy this week speaking Irish, learning seanfhocail, designing Irish posters, making crafts for St. Patrick's Day, singing Irish songs and learning Irish dances.  On Thursday Airneán, a traditional Irish band performed for all the classes.  The band members played the guitar, banjo, button accordian, flute and uileann pipes.  The children learned all about these instruments as well as getting the chance to listen so some fantastic Irish music.  Some classes performed some Irish dances with Airneán too.  On Friday teachers awarded children in their class with prizes for being "Cainteoir na Seachtaine."  All the school also came together in the hall for a céilí mór.  Every class performed Irish songs and Irish Dancing for the rest of the school.  There was an excellent variety of different songs and dances.  Some girls who play traditional music and attend Irish dancing classes outside of school, then performed for everyone.  The céilí finished with the whole school standing to sing Amhrán na bhFiann.  It was a very enjoyable morning with so much talent being showcased by the children and teachers.  It was a very successful week.  Special thanks to Mrs. McDonald who coordinated all the activities for Seachtain na Gaeilge.
