200 students took part in this year’s ‘Gaeilge 24’ Irish language challenge run by Conradh na Gaeilge. Students embraced the challenge to speak as much Irish as they could for twenty four hours. Not only did our students take part, but also many of our teachers embraced the opportunity to speak their ‘cúpla focal’. We had lots of activities throughout the day, like a céilí, tráth na gceist, songs, games, movies, yoga and meditation. We also had a special Pop Up Gaeltacht at lunchtime where our Irish language student committee ‘An Coiste’ hosted a quiz and music. We had a wonderful day and are looking forward to participating again next year!
Thanks to Ms Laura McGlade and the Irish teachers for organising the event!
