WALTONS MUSIC FOR SCHOOLS 2014 COMPETITION – SPECIAL MERIT ENTRIES

Although they were not selected as 2014 Finalists, two entries – from Castleknock College, Dublin 15 and Caherline National School, Co. Limerick – were selected as entries deserving of Special Merit and we have uploaded their entry videos to our You Tube channel.

Castleknock College entered a performance involving a phenomenal 200 students from their school in an extraordinary display of effort, enthusiasm and imagination. They have an abundance of talent and we look forward to seeing their entry or entries in the 2015 competition next year. Well done them all and to their teacher, Fearghus Fallon, on managing to harness so much musical energy.

Caherline National School’s performance by their 84-strong traditional group was a tour-de-force of traditional instrument playing by students from 2nd to 6th classes and their enthusiasm and energy was tremendous. Well done to them all and congratulations to their Principal Michael McCarthy on his very musical school. We look forward to seeing Caherline NS next year!
