Bhí Lá Fhéile Pádraig iontach againn sa halla i mbliana. We had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day in the hall this year. Every child dressed in green and sang Irish songs, recited Irish poems or played some tunes. 5th Class performed a drama. There was great variety and children enjoyed the concert (ceolchoirm). Unfortunately, due to space restrictions, we could not invite our parents.

Massive thanks to parents and children who helped out in our collection of rugby stickers over the last number of weeks. We collected over 300 stickers, filled up our poster and now have a chance to win 50,000 euro for the school! Fingers crossed! All your support is hugely appreciated as always!

Seachtain na Gaeilge ( Week of Irish )

During Seachtain na Gaeilge we practised lots of Irish during the day. We learned a simple Irish Jig. We taught our Mammies and Daddies some Irish:

  • Hello: Dia duit ( Dee a gwitch )
  • Goodbye: Slán leat ( Slawn lat )
  • Thank you: Go raibh maith agat ( Guh rev moh agut )
  • You’re welcome: Tá failte romhat ( Taw fall che wrote )


St. Patrick’s Day

We cut out and glued Leprechaun Hats and we used bottle corks to paint flag patterns and shamrocks on our St. Patrick’s Day Cards. We did some lovely writing inside our cards too.

We also drew some lovely, Lucky Leprechaun’s by following a You Tube Art Hub video and I think you will agree they look fantastic!

We learned two songs for our St. Patrick’s Day Ceolchoirm: Lá ‘le Pádraig and I’m a little leprechaun which we performed with Ms. Mc Nulty’s Class and Ms. Concannon’s Class.  And we were “ar fheabhas”! ( excellent )
