St. Patrick’s Day Parade

TY students celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in style, taking to the street of Herbertstown to highlight the difficulties of the bumble bee in modern society. Their impressive street performance, entitled “The Plight of the Honeybee”, aimed to inform and entertain the assembled crowds at Herbertstown St. Patrick’s Day parade, held on Sunday the 16th of March. A feast for the eyes and the ears, the students and their hegely impressive puppets, costumes and floats, told of the danger to this vital insect for life as we know it. Dance and drama were beautifully choreographed and made the production a wonderful sight for young and old. This display forms part of the Street Performance module of the Transition Year programme. Ms. Caoimh Ryan, Mr. Donnacha MacGabhann and Fr. Sean Fennelly worked tirelessly to develop this fascinating concept and bring this amazing performance to fruition. Many other staff members and students gave a helping hand. The group is also involved with the Young Social Innovators competition.¬†Congratulations to all involved.
