NEW for 2018/19 Our three 5th classes and Ms. Murray’s 6th will participate in the National Children’s Choir for 2018/19. This will be performing in Shoreline or the National Basketball Arena next Spring and a number of students will get the chance to perform in the National Concet Hall. All four classes are already practising hard.
Annually Ms. Ahern prepares children for the Kilcoole Feis. St. Brigid’s has a long tradition of participation in this local event.
Kilcoole Feis 2003
We were very happy to hear about the musical success of a past pupil of the school. Harry O’Connor left St.Brigid’s after a year in Ms. Ahern’s Junior Infants. We have happy memories of Harry performing ‘The Friendly Cow’ in the Kilcoole Feis. As we recall he won. Here he is sitting at the front on the left.
Harry is now an accomplished composer, musician and conductor. We wish Harry all the best in the future and will follow his progress with interest and with pride.
