The traditional musicians of Our Lady’s Templemore have been making the most of their time by creating a super video to help lighten the spirits and bring some joy and happiness to everyone’s house.

The musicians featured in the video are part of a traditional Irish music group called Corca Téine 2020 at Our Lady's. 

These musicians have been working hard all year and were delighted to reach the second round of Siansa, one of the country’s most prestigious competitions for young traditional Irish music and singing groups this year. The group have also performed for renowned musicians Declan Masterson and Bernadette Nic Gabhain. 

Students and staff would like to extend a special thanks to Martin Grey of Grey Mobile Media Ltd for his expertise in video editing and production and especially his patience throughout the whole project.
