Céilí Mór celebrates its 40th Anniversary

The annual Céilí Mór took place in St. Mary’s College took place on Thursday 7th December. This was an historic occasion as the Céilí Mór reached a massive milestone, celebrating its 40th Anniversary. The Céilí is a long-standing tradition in the Marist, having first begun in 1977.

Hunderds of students from all year groups took part as always, in a night full of damhsa, ceol agus craic. Students were guided by their Irish teachers, who practiced throughout the week with them, so they were familiar with the steps and movements of Ballaí Luimní, Ionsaí na hInse, Baint an Fhéir, Tonnaí Thoraí and Aoibhneas na Bealtaine. Students were also amazed by the Irish dancing show put on for them at the interval by the school’s Irish dancing group. The atmosphere was electric as always and we look forward to the 41st year of the Céilí next year!
