Our school band is comprised of pupils from Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes. These children play a variety of instruments including tin whistle, concertina, accordion, flute, violin, glockenspiel, chime bars and a broad range of percussion instruments including drums, djembes and bongos.
Children from Third Classes learn the tin whistle. After this year they are welcome to move onto another instrument if they so wish.
Our school band partakes in many occasions during the year:

– Christmas Fair
– Community visits at Christmas time
– Cór Fhéile in City Hall
– Masses and ceremonies such as Confirmation and First Communion
– School Events and celebrations
