Cashel Community School secured first place in two choir competitions recently. 

On Wednesday 28th February, the senior boys choir travelled to County Cork for the Feis Maitiú competition. They sang ‘Riu Riu Chiu’, a 16th Century Spanish piece arranged by Michael McGlynn, and ‘Poor Wayfaring Stranger’, a traditional spiritual piece arranged by Victor C. Johnson. The boys sang very well and took home the Cash’s of Cork Perpetual Trophy, thereby retaining the award which was won by the school’s senior girls choir in 2017.

On Friday 9th March, Cashel Community School’s senior choir took part in the Limerick Choral Festival Post-Primary Mixed Voices competition at the Redemptorist Church. Their first song was ‘Precious Lord Take My Hand’, written by Thomas A. Dorsey. The second piece the choir performed was ‘White Winter Hymnal’, written by Robin Pecknold and arranged by Michaela Maher. The choir sang against schools from Connacht and Leinster. This was the senior choir’s sixth time taking first place in the competition.

Cashel Community School congratulates both choirs and their music teacher Ms. Liane Bradley.
