Sixth class pupils drumming in Scoil Mhuire NS Abbeyleix.

A magnificent display of African and South American drumming rang out in Scoil Mhuire NS Abbeyleix recently.

Ms Delaney and Ms Watson's 6th class students treated parents and friends to a special performance, led by tutor Eddie O Neill.

Eddie has been teaching drumming to pupils at the school for several years, supported by Music Generation Laois.

As part of the show, the students introduced and explained the history behind the drums, and then launched into a wonderful energetic performance, with everyone joining in and clapping along.

Mrs Slevin thanked all involved especially Eddie and Rosa Flannery from Music Generation who came to enjoy the day. There was also a special guest performance by 5th class student Jessica Broady.
