The concert is being organised by the parents council for the children, staff, parents and friends of Gaelscoil Phortlaoise, and the Gaelscoil pupils will be singing during the event. The Gaelscoil pupils will be seated at the front of the hall in their class groups and will join John Spillane in singing the songs they learned at school.
