GAELSCOIL Chill Dara celebrates 20 years of growth with the Dublin Gospel Choir.So save the date and book the babysitter! The school, which is located on the Green Road in Newbridge, is delighted to present the wonderful, multi-award winning Dublin Gospel Choir in concert on Thursday 5 November in the ballroom in the Keadeen Hotel. The school is delighted that one of Ireland’s premier professional choirs will bring their special brand of funk, soul, rhythm and blues and gospel music to Newbridge, after playing venues and events all over the country, performing for Heads of State and VIPs from Mizen to Malin.
From tiny shoots in September 1995, Gaelscoil Chill Dara has reached its full potential in beautiful accommodation on the edge of the Curragh and welcomes 16 classes of children from Newbridge and further afield, all united in their desire to take the cúpla focail further and gain a full proficiency of their native language, following the standard national school curriculum as Gaeilge.
The school is a thriving community with active sports teams, choir, drama, Green Flag, garden and activities for all ages, interests and abilities. The school welcomes and supports children with additional needs, who thrive in a friendly, busy environment.
“Bígí linn, agus bainigi taitneamh as an oíche mór le chéile. Tickets for the gala concert, priced €20, will be available during October from Gaelscoil Chill Dara and from Maura Donohoe Estate Agent on Main Street, Newbridge.
Tickets will sell fast, and there is a facility to reserve tickets in advance by private message to “Gaelscoil Chill Dara Fiche bliain ag fás” on Facebook.
