Coiste na Gaeilge is a 5th year Student Irish Committee who work in conjunction with the Irish teachers to promote Irish in Scoil Mhuire. Under the coordinator and of Mr M Kerr and Ms L Harlin, this committee has gone from strength to strength over the past 5 years with further plans to expand and introduce new activities and games in this school year.
As well as organising Seachtain na Gaeilge in March of every year, the committee run “Club G” – an Irish lunchtime club for 1st and 2nd years. The club meets once a week in which students participate in various fun games and activities, all through the medium of Irish.
For the past 4 years, the 5th Year Irish Committee have awarded the Gaelbhratach, an Irish flag that is awarded to schools who promote the Irish spoken language throughout school life. It is our hope that Scoil Mhuire will make it 5 in a row this year with being awarded such a prestigious award. We are very proud of the continuous work and effort the committee puts into promoting Irish in the school.
