On Thursday the 12th of October Domnic Connell (2nd year), Adam Fay (2nd Year), Aislingh Brady (2nd Year and Dearbhla Mc Cormick (1st Year) travelled to St. Macartan’s College in Monaghan to compete in the regional heats of the Poetry Aloud Competition. The students competed with students from schools all over County Monaghan. The students performed two poems in total. The first poem students performed was “Kerr’s Ass” by Patrick Kavanagh. Students chose their second poem from the “Rattle Bag” anthology of poetry. We were treated to fantastic renditions of “Cut Grass” by Philip Larkin and “The Black Cloud” by W.H. Davies. The standards were very high at the competition and our students excelled. Well done to all students who took part.
