Gaelscoil Mhic Amhlaigh wins national award

May 18, 2012

Gaelscoil Mhic Amhlaigh in Knocknacarra recently won the All-Ireland Final in the Féile Scoil Drámaíochta for 2012 in Mullingar, Co.Westmeath.

Rang 4, under the direction of their teacher Fergal Ó Mainín, won the musical category with their production as Gaeilge of Charles Dickens’ ‘Oliver Twist’. The musical achieved Scoth Léiriú na Féile in the Co. Galway competition and also came through the Connacht Finals to qualify for the All Ireland Final in Mullingar.

All involved put in a huge effort and the school has thanked múinteoir Deirdre, who played the music throughout the production, Geraldine Holmes, who did the make-up, and all the parents who helped out backstage.

Six members of the cast will travel to the Celtic Suite in Croke Park tomorrow, Thursday 17 May, to accept the national award on behalf of their class.
