6th Class opened up the Céilí with 'The Deer's Cry'. In the weeks leading up to the Céilí, we had worked to practice but we soon got the hang of it. We were in our tracksuits since it's a tradition wearing it for the performance. When we finished our piece we went up to our classroom to change into our green clothes.
We returned to the hall, sat down and watched the performances! 2nd class did some amazing poems and Irish dancing, 3rd Class sang 'Can't stop the feeling' as Gaeilge, 4th class performed 'Amhráin na gCupáin' (The Cup Song), Ms Hickey sang 'Sé Mo Laoch'. When the 5th Classes danced to 'Ballaí Luimní', we even got to get up and dance with our friends too.
Finally, our turn had come. We started off with Droichead Átha Luain, it was so fun and we soon got in rhythm. We that had finished we got ready for the special 6th Class March. The March was one of the most bittersweet moments since it was our last Céilí. We formed a cicle and sang 'Ireland's Call' and 'Amhráin na bhFiann'. The whole school and the audience of parents and guardians sang along.
When it was over, Mrs. Shannon thanked everyone and praised us for doing such a good job.
We were saddened that Ms Ní Ríain couldn't perform her traditional Irish dance due to injury, we will have to come back next year to see her dance again! We really enjoyed our last Céilí in OLV!
