Traditional Irish Music performed at Skerries ETNS

We were very fortunate to be visited by a group of musicians from Skerries on Friday last as part of the Skerries Traditional Music Festival 2018.  The musicians brought a terrific range of instruments (including a harp, uileann pipes, a banjo, a violin, a flute and a bodhran) and in addition to playing a medley of traditional music for the children, there was an opportunity for the audience to hear about the history of each instrument and how it is made.  The children certainly enjoyed it and there was plenty of clapping and stamping along with the music, which is always a good sign.

We’d like to say a big thank you to James O’Mahoney and the rest of the group for taking the time to come to the school and put on the performance for the children.
