The Landlord’s Cat!

Congratulations to the boys and girls of Junior and Senior Infants  for their wonderful performance of the Landlord’s Cat.

‘The Landlord’s Cat’ tells the story of the Nativity through the eyes of a cat!  The landlord’s cat is so fed up with the hectic atmosphere in Bethlehem, and being ignored by his owner, that he is on the verge of leaving town. However, with the arrival of Mary and Joseph in the stable, as well as wise men and shepherds, the cat (being a wily and intuitive creature), senses that something very special is about to happen. Naturally he is determined to find out just what it is.

A big thank you to their teachers Ms. Griffin and Mr. Ó’hAnluain and all those who helped to make the performance a great success.

It’s a Baby!

Well done to the boys and girls of First and Second Class for their wonderful performance of It’s a Baby.

A Nativity with a difference, tells the traditional story from the perspective of a weary innkeeper. Thanks to all parents for their help and support throughout. Well done to their teachers Mrs. Harnett and Mr. McCarthy. Thanks also to  Phyl Hegarty, Kay Healy and Siobhán Smith.
