The first up to represent the school was Leticia McCarthy from 6th class. Leticia successfully qualified for the next round in the Solo Singing category with a powerful rendition of “The Voyage”. Well done Leticia!
Congratulations also to our Ballad Group consisting of Ava McCarthy and Christina Sabbage from 6th, Ilona Perret and Matas Gudauskis from 5th, and accompanied by Lia Connolly, also from 5th class, on the guitar. The group sang the traditional Irish song “Báidín Fheilimí”, and the ballad “No Frontiers” by Jimmy MacCarthy. A wonderful performance ensured that they also have qualified for the next round of the competition.
The Tráth na gCeisteann team was Louis Allman from 5th, Finn Michael Bowen from 6th, and Natasha Hayes from 4th. It was a tough quiz, with some very difficult questions, and unfortunately they did not get through this time round.
So it’s a big thank you to Alice McCarthy, David O’Leary and Norah Kenny for working so hard with all those taking part. The school is now looking forward to the next round of the competition. This is taking place on Sunday the 22nd of February in Riverstick Hall.
