Covid-19 Updates

Statement from the Department of Education and Skills:

"The Department of Education and Skills is liaising closely with the Department of Health on a continuing basis.

A "Medley of Musicals" show

 

Transition Year students are presenting their production of a “Medley of Musicals” next week . It will be held in Colaiste Ide agus Iosef, Abbeyfeale on the 9th and 10th of March with the show starting at 7.30pm each night.

 Speaking about the production, teacher Con Healy has said; “We are looking forward to this production as we know seeing some of the rehearsals that it will be a very enjoyable evening. This is due in no small part to the commitment and workrate of each student. The entire process is a great bonding experience for all students, where self confidence and leadership skills are enhanced".

This will be a gripping show full of thrills, music and a lot of laughs. With dances set to songs from Beyonce and Billie Eilish to skits such as Crime Busters and Beauty and the Beast. A truly enjoyable evening to look forward to.  

Tickets for the show are available from the school on (068)30631 and Ann Lyons, Main Street, Abbeyfeale. Tickets cost €10 each.
