1916 in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní)

On Monday 18th January, the girls in 5th and 6th Classes will have a real treat! The wonderful play, Me, Mollser, will be coming to the school. The Department of Education and Skills, in conjunction with The Abbey Theatre (the National Theatre of Ireland), is supporting the performance of this play for children in 5th and 6th Classes around the country, as part of the 1916 Commemoration Programme. We are very fortunate that we have been chosen as one of the schools where the Abbey Theatre will perform. The play is a re-telling of The Plough and the Stars by Seán O’Casey through the eyes of the youngest character, Mollser. It is set in the notorious tenements of Dublin around 1916 and promises to be a memorable performance for the children. Be sure to ask your daughter all about it when she comes home on the 18th!
