6th class put on a play in Irish last week to mark Seachtain na Gaeilge. They wrote the scripts themselves and performed each sketch excellently. They made sure to include many Irish songs and recorder tunes also!
On Sunday 11th December there was a Carol Recital in St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s Church, Kilmallock.
Choirs from both Primary and Secondary Schools performed in the first half and Kilmallock Church Choir performed in the second half.
Tickets cost €5 and children were free.
All proceeds from this recital will go towards repair and maintenance of the church organ.
Scoil Mocheallóg marked Proclamation Day by having a concert with all things Irish! Classes participated by either singing, dancing or playing musical instruments, and one class even performed the Haka as Gaeilge! Two classes read out their respective ‘Proclamation for a New Generation’, a proclamation written by the students for 2016.
Jane Moroney visited Scoil Mocheallóg for the celebrations and brought information and memorabilia about her father who was active in the War of Independence. A native of Kilmallock, he is buried in our local cemetery.
Following the concert was a flag-raising ceremony, where the tricolour was raised, the original proclamation read and the National Anthem was sung by all students of Scoil Mocheallóg.
The Junior School of Scoil Mocheallóg will hold their annual Dancing Feis on Thursday 10th March.
