Irish Musicians visit school

St. Martin de Porres school welcomed a group of Irish Traditional Musicians to the school this week - Cormac de Barra (Moya Brennan Band ), Martin and Ciaran Tourish (ALTAN) and Liam O'Maonlai (Hothouse Flowers). All of the musicians have played their music in all parts of the world. They stunned both the staff and children with their tunes and stories. The musicians interacted with the children explaining different rhythms, playing music and singing songs.The musicians were very impressed with the standard of our school band and encouraged them to continue with their music after school.
