Feis Charn Tóchair
At this time of year we would normally be preparing for Feis Charn Tóchair. The Feis is a highlight of events in our calendar celebrating our language and the re-instatement of the Irish language in Co. Derry. But obviously with the current restrictions in place to slow the effects of the Coronavirus, this year's Feis will not take place.
The aim of the Feis is to celebrate the Irish language and culture through poetry recitation, music, singing, writing and art. The day of the Feis is particularly special with hundreds of children and young people from all the Naíscoil, Gaelscoil and Secondary schools in the wider area taking part in the competitions and parents have the opportunity to see and hear their children speaking in Irish.
It will be a huge loss that this event will not go ahead, but as a measure to celebrate the Feis and promote some positivity during this time, we invite children and young people to send us pictures /video clips of their entries so that we can post them here.
Please send via whats app to 07918146063 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org with the name & class/year of the entrant.
