Pupils and teachers throughout the county are eagerly preparing for Féile Dhún Dealgan, the annual Irish language Scoildrámaíocht festival which takes place tomorrow.

This year’s festival will take place in An Táin Theatre on Crowe Street in Dundalk from 10am to 2pm on Wednesday, with local schools at both primary and secondary level taking part. The festival gives students the opportunity to act, gain confidence and have fun all as Gaeilge.

Schools partaking in this year’s festival include Kilsaran National School, Bellurgan National School, Gaelscoil Dhún Dealgan, St Mary’s College Dundalk, Redeemer Boys’ School and Coláiste Lú. Winners at the competition will go on to represent the region in Féile Laighean / the Leinster Provincial Festival.

Entrance is open to the public throughout the day and will be €1 for pupils / €4 for adults in what is sure to be a fulfilling and exciting day for all those involved. As the Irish proverb says, “Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí!”

An Cumann Scoildrámaíochta was first established in 1934 and is now over 80 years old with thousands of students from throughout the country taking part each year. The Dundalk festival was reformed in 2014 after a gap of a number of years and its popularity has grown rapidly with great interest shown from local schools.
