Scoil Mhuire Fatima in Timahoe celebrated their heritage and native language during Seachtain na Gaeilge with a lively concert.
Junior Infants stole the hearts of all singing four Irish songs, while it was drama all round for the older infants performing “Mo bhábóg”.
First and Second recited “Éadaí Nua”, sang “Lá le Pádraig” and did some Irish dancing.
The 3rd and 4th class cover of “Wagon Wheel” as Gaeilge was a great hit, as was their rendition of Oró Sé do Bheatha Bhaile.
5th class boys sang Dóchas Linn Naomh Pádraig, while the girls proudly sang Amhrán na bhFiann.
To the delight of all, 6th class performed Amhrán na gCupán to perfection, followed by a captivating performance by All-Ireland champion dancer Roisin Hyland.
Under the expert guidance of music maestro John Davidson, the 35-strong violin group brought a most enjoyable concert to a close.
School principal Ann Bergin said that a language is a living thing.
“Our pupils have become accustomed to speaking fluently and confidently and communicating with ease as a result of the dedicated work and strategic planning of the staff,” she said.
