Students at Offaly school enjoy great success at Fleadh Cheoil

Students from Coláiste Naomh Cormac who were successful at Offaly Fleadh Cheoil.

Coláiste Naomh Cormac were delighted to host the Offaly county Fleadh Cheoil on May bank holiday weekend.

The corridors were alive with chat, laughter and music which was a welcome sight after the last two quiet years without gatherings. Well done to staff member Eimear Buckley and all the local committee in Ballyboy CCÉ branch on running this successful event. Colaiste Naomh Cormac students had great success representing their branches: Ballyboy, Craobh Chuillinn (Rath) and Killeigh. These students will now go forward to the Leinster Fleadh in nearby Portlaoise in July.
