Bhí lá iontach againn i Scoil Oilibhéir inniu. Ghlac gach duine páirt san Cheilí mór sa chlós. What a day we had today! All classes took to the school yard to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge with some singing and dancing. The drizzle did not dampen our enthusiasm and was, in fact, very appropriate as Ms Daly’s class led us in performing Ag Canadh sa Bháisteach!! Ms. Lane’s class helped us all to learn some Irish dancing and that was followed by Mr. Ryng’s class who gave a rousing rendition of Oró ‘sé do Bheatha Bhaile. By then we were all ready for our old favourite An Dreoilín followed by Amhrán Oilibhéir and Amhrán na bhFiann which brought a close to proceedings. It was great to hear our Irish favourites ring out across the hills of Ballyvolane.
