Principal Micheál Martin, praising the children, teachers and all involved in achieving such great results, described the achievement as great and fantastic and the mayor, who hails from Our Lady's Island, said he was delighted to bring a civic honour to the school and the village.
The show had over 60 participants from 5th and 6th class and was directed by 6th class teacher Mairéad Moore, assisted by well-known composer Liam Bates and choreographed by Órla Kelly.
