STUDENTS from Meánscoil Gharman, Enniscorthy and Danescastle NS, Carrig-on-Bannow, were among 600 pupils, from both primary and secondary schools, who gathered in the Pavilion at Leopardstown racecourse in Dublin to attend the presentation of An Ghaelbhratach on Monday last week.

The Gaelbhratach scheme, funded by Foras na Gaeilge, and organised by Gael Linn with the support of Conradh na Gaeilge and Glór na nGael, recognises the promotion of the Irish language in both secondary and primary schools around the country.

This year's event recognised the Irish language achievements of over 60 schools.

Eoghan Mac Dermott from 2FM presented the event and the group Seo Linn had no problem getting the huge crowd to sing along to their many hits in Irish.
