19th December 2018 saw a day of excitement, entertainment, enthusiasm and most importantly, enjoyment. The Irish Department hosted their ninth annual Year Eight Scór na Nollag; a celebration of craft, music, dance, drama and quiz.

In the run up to the big day, the energetic and enthusiastic Year Eight classes made a fantastic contribution in their thorough in-class preparations. Songs were learned off by heart, creative and inspired Christmas posters were produced and dances were practised to perfection.

To start off the morning’s proceedings, each class courageously took to the floor and performed their class song. This was followed by the smaller group acts; with superb singers, instrument playing and Irish dancing being enjoyed by all. An all-encompassing quiz tested our Year Eight pupils, who rose to the task and answered the challenging questions laid before them. Additionally, the pre-submitted Christmas posters were judged on adherence to the guidelines, creativity and originality.

Each class accumulated marks from all events and prizes were awarded accordingly. Results were as follows:
Poster winners; 8A – Paudie, Méabh; 8B – Madelyn, Emmet; 8C – Lily, Áine; 8D  - Tom, Alex, Ruairí; 8E – Edward, Shea; 8F – Meadow, Connie, Erin; 8G – Anna, Amelie, Ruby
