A cold February Monday turned into a wonderful warm experience as singer John Spillane performed for us in the school hall. With his engaging personality and clear enjoyment, he provided a memorable hour’s entertainment for all present. Mixing old Irish songs such as “Oró sé do Bheath Abhaile” and ” Beidh Aonach Amárach” with his own songs and including some favourites such as “Old McDonald” for the younger children, he was a big hit. A highlight was the whole school singing along with his own “Passage West”. It was a warm uplifting hour of singing and proved that the old songs have a lasting value. Go raibh míle, míle, míle maith agat John!
