Plúirín Sneachta agus na Seachtar Fir Beaga

As part of the transition year Irish programme the T.Y. 2 class performed an Irish play go huile is go hiomlán as gaelige!

The play – Snow White and The Seven Dwarves was a great success. When we were first told we would perform a play in Irish we weren’t very optimistic to say the least! But with a bit of work we pulled it off. We decided to put a modern twist on the beloved fairytale and took it into our own hands to write the play.

We did the play as a way of promoting the Irish language and culture in the school. We performed the play for 1st and 2nd years and they all enjoyed it. We charged each student €2 and donated the proceeds to the victims of Haiti.

We all had great fun while rehearsing for the play as well as learning the auld cúpla focal!

Retirement Concert

Liam Lenihan Retirement Concert

A retirement concert was held in the school on Saturday 26th September. It was a night of song and dance performed by both past and present students. One of the highlights of the night was a self penned song by Liams Son and Daughters who had travelled from the UK, France, Switzerland and little more locally Limerick to attend.

Presentations were made by the Parents Council and G.A.A. on the night to both Liam and Micheal Cregan for their long service to the school.

Limerick Leader Articale 15th January 2005

You’re A Star contestants hope Eurovision spot is signed, sealed and delivered

NEXT week’s 17th birthday of Máire Íde de Bhál from Feenagh might be the happiest of her life, as she again showcases before a huge national audience on You’re a Star.

And the students’ council at her school, Hazlewood College, Dromcollogher, is now liaising with the other VEC schools and colleges in a co-ordinated push for text and e-mail votes for next Sunday’s second elimination concert on RTÉ1.

Already, colour posters have been placed in schools, bars and discos, seeking support for the only Limerick contestant to have reached the finals in the competition to choose Ireland’s representative act at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev in May.

Daughter of Máire and Bertie Wall, the young accordion player and harpist reached the final stages of the competition and, last Sunday, easily got through the televised first elimination round at Dublin’s Helix Theatre at DCU.

She is one of a three-girl group, George, who came second in Sunday’s voting.

But, before she got to the finals at all, Máire Íde had to audition in Limerick and then undergo a gruelling week-long workshop with voice trainers, choreographers and stylists in Killarney, before emerging as part of one of the final 12 acts.

“Killarney was hectic, but we enjoyed it,” she said this week.

The judges, Hazel Kaneswaran, Barbara Galavan and Dave Fanning, gave three individual entrants, including Máire Íde, the opportunity to form a vocal group in just one day and prove themselves worthy of a place in the final stages.

Máire Íde, with Julie Cunane 19 from Dundalk and Sarah Goodwin 16 from Cork, had to pick a song, learn its words, arrange harmonies, learn a choreographed dance routine and co-ordinate outfits for a stage presentation to a large audience in the Gleneagles Hotel. Calling themselves George, they selected Stevie Wonder’s Signed, Sealed, Deliveredâ and convinced the judges they have what it takes to go through.

And so, this Sunday, as the elimination finals continue at 6.30 on RTÉ1, it will be down to text and e-votes to see whether Feenagh’s youngest star will take another step towards the great night in Kiev.
