Storyteller Niall de Búrca greets our new First Years

A very big welcome to our new First Year students. On Wednesday students were treated to a day of storytelling by the very talented Mr Niall de Búrca. Niall entertained us with his twist on the famous Salmon of Knowledge Legend and other tales from mythical Ireland.

The students’ imaginations were fully captured and laughter could be heard outside the hall as Niall described some of those feelings that come with making the transition from primary to secondary school. We had many parents attend the event also and they too enjoyed listening to and laughing at the stories being told.

Thank you to Ms Ford and Ms O’Mahony who organised the event which will hopefully encourage and inspire our new First Year students to fire up their imaginations through their love of reading.niall de b
