Okay, the debate can continue regarding the actual starting dates of the seasons, but we will proudly continue with St. Brigid’s Day as the official start of spring in Ireland: especially in Irish class and especially during Covid times and especially when the weather seems to need a bit of a nudge! Most years at St. Conleth’s, February 1st is one of our most enjoyable days, when the whole school gathers in the hall for a celebration of An t-Earrach, and Mr. ÓDulaing, Mr. Kilcommons and Mr. Gallagher wax poetically about the brightening of the year. And the Junior School students always respond with music and art, including the traditional reed crosses. Well, Third Form Teacher Ms. Dillon has done her best to keep up the specialness of the time via Zoom, by encouraging her students to artistically express what Spring means to them, in pictures and as Gaeilge. Enjoy!
