Laochra

On April 24th 1916, 1200  volunteers changed the landscape of Irish history forever. To commemorate this historic event, students from Transition Year, 5th and 6th Year took part in Laochra celebrations in Croke Park. Senior students were asked to join “The Line Up Choir” to sing four songs in front of 82,000 people. The students and Ms. Harding rehearsed lots before school and after school in the weeks coming up to this big event. They sang four songs. ‘Oro Se Do Bheatha ‘bhaile’, ‘Taimse’, ‘Amhran na bhFiann’ and ‘Proclamation’ which  was composed by the famous composer Patrick Cassidy especially for this event. On the weekend of the event, the girls put in a lot of hard work in early morning rehearsals both days. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, allowing the girls see what it is like to perform not only with Irelands top performers in Croke Park but to a crowd of 82,000 people. It will be something they will remember for the rest of their lives. So, well done to all involved.
