Scléip 2012 Winners

March 26, 2012

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the final of the Scléip 2011 competition, we had a great day on March 24th in the Axis theatre in Ballymun. 15 schools took part in the final, and the day was a huge success. We had three judges for the show, Sinéad ní Uallacháin, Tomaí Ó Conghaile agus Jen ní Mhathúna, and they had a hard job choosing winners as the standard was so high on stage on the day. They praised all of the competitors for the progress they’d made since the regional heats, all of their practice paid off! After much discussion, they announced the results to the audience. We’d like to thank them for all their hard work, and to thank the teachers, parents and enthusiastic audience too, who gave the participants such encouragement. We wish the participants themselves all the best for the future; you’ve certianly got talent and we look forward to seeing you onstage again, whether it’s at Scléip 2013 or in the o2, who knows!
