Lá Glas On Thursday March 16th Edenmore N.S. held a Lá Glas to mark both St. Patrick’s
Day and the end of Seachtain na Gaeilge. Irish and green were the themes of the
day with pupils and staff dressing to make themselves look as patriotic as possible!
Proceedings began with an Irish Assembly where pupils from Mrs Loughran’s class did
a presentation and provided the rest of the school with lots of information and facts
about St. Patrick. Mrs Doody presented the winners of Gaeilgeoirí na Seachtaine
each with a Fáine Óir. The winners of the Seanfhocail poster competition were also
presented with prizes (Fáinne).
A break in the weather allowed pupils the chance to go outside and participate in
some Irish sports and activities. Every child spent some time doing hurling, Gaelic
football, Irish dancing and skipping while singing Irish Rhymes. After the activities
pupils moved inside where the Parents Association had some traditional Irish food
ready for all of the children. Champ, stew, cabbage, ham and wheaten/soda bread were
some of the delicacies that the pupils got to sample!
It was a very enjoyable day for everyone and well done to the children, parents and
staff of Edenmore N.S. for making it happen.
