Congratulations and well done to Mr. Murphy and Fourth Class who scooped two awards at the ‘Féile Náisiúnta’ All Ireland drama competition in Mullingar. Their drama, ‘An Scathán Draíochta’, got first in their category – ‘Scoláirí na Scoile i Rang 3 agus Rang 4′ and also won best overall drama for a non Gaelscoil – ‘An Bhunscoil is fearr nach Gaelscoil nó Scoil Gaeltachta í’. On May 7th, Mr. Murphy and a couple of lucky students are on the road to Croker to collect their prizes!  Bronnfar na duaiseanna i bPáirc an Chrócaigh ar an gCéadaoin, 7 Bealtaine, ag 1.30pm.
