More than 430 primary school pupils from Fermanagh and surrounding district took part in a traditional Irish Céilí in the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum on Tuesday 17 January 2017.

The Primary Schools Céilí or Céilí na mBunscoileanna, marked the end of a Fermanagh and Omagh District Council cultural programme, where primary school pupils had the opportunity to learn several Irish Céilí dances.

Over the course of the two-month programme, pupils from St Mary’s Newtownbutler; St Mary’s Brookeborough; St Scire’s Trillick; St Ninnidh’s Derrylin; St Joseph’s Ederney; St Mary’s Mullymekser; St Martin’s Garrison; St Paul’s Irvinestown; Killyhommond Boho; St Naile’s Kinawley; St Mary’s Maguiresbridge; St Columba’s Belcoo; St Jonn the Baptist Roscor, and St Patrick’s Derrygonnelly learned a number of Ceilí dances. These included The Walls of Limerick; The Siege of Ennis; The Waves of Tory; A Barn Dance; Shoe the Donkey, the Highland Fling and a line dance called An Dreoilín.

With live traditional music provided by The Mc Glone Brothers from Omagh, the toe tapping, hand clapping Céilí allowed the children to put all their hard work and dance tuition into action while having lots of fun.

Each of the attending schools also performed a unique party piece on stage which included songs in Irish and English, solo dances, solo and group instrumental pieces by schools’ music groups.
