Seachtain na Gaeilge and Lá Glas

Lots of celebrations for Seachtain na Gaeilge in school this week as the Irish Department organised events in classes from bingo as gaelige, céili agus craic. Adding to the great atmosphere Louis Smith sang the Irish Rover and Eoin Reynolds performed some sean nós dancing.
Ms Colum’s TY class made St. Patricks Day cards for the residents and staff of Ballinamore Nursing Home along with Irish Soda Bread and Lá Glas cupcakes being made in Home Economics.
The Irish Department along with Student Council and members of the Social Justice Committee organised a Lá Glas fundraising event on 16th March where students and staff were encouraged to wear green to celebrate SnaG and as we stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine we asked people to donate to our chosen charity The Red Cross. That event was a huge success with a total of €603 being raised and we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who contributed to this fundraiser. 🇺🇦
