Well done to the Under 15 and Under 12 groups who both came second in their compeititions.  It was a great achievement.  Also our musicians did very well in the individual competitions so well done to all who participated and to those who won.  With the fleadh just round the corner we need to keep up the good work and continue with the classes, practices and the Thursday sessions
