For the last two years LyricFM's breakfast show has been running a competition entitled Moladh an Cheoil where schools at Primary and Secondary Level enter a submission detailing their school's musical activities. Gaelscoil Aonach Urmhumhan was delighted to receive the great news that we were chosen as the National winners in the Primary Category of Moladh an Cheoil.

Last Thursday 3 pupils and their teacher were invited to the Lyric FM studios in Limerick for the presentation of the Moladh an Cheoil award. Trish Taylor, presenter and Eoin O'Kelly, producer of Lyric Breakfast treated the pupils to a tour of the studios and an opportunity to sit at the production desk as a programme was airing live. Next followed the award ceremony where we were presented with our award and the outstanding prize - €3000 worth of Yamaha Musical Equipment courtesy of Yamaha Ireland.
The Lyric Breakfast team provided us with a lovely lunch and extended to us such warm hospitality throughout our visit, making it an occassion to remember forever.

Gaelscoil Aonach Urmhumhan is very proud of our strong musical tradition and are very proud of this official acknowledgement. Our school provided a detailed and comprehensive description of the wide range of musical achievements eg: the launch of our school CD, an banna cheoil, how music is integrated throughout the curriculum including the use of music as an inspiration for art classes, the composition of our school's anthem, our participation in the Féíle and Aonaigh singing competitions, the staging of many class Dramas and shows including this year's 5th class who reached the Munster Final for their adaption of the Scéal Cúchulainn.
