Music Lessons

Our music lessons start in September of each year and we offer group classes in guitar, tin whistle, banjo and bodhran and accordion to all ages at a charge of €5 per lesson.

We have in house concerts during the year to showcase the progression of the pupils musical talents and as a celebration to thank parents for their support and commitment.

Dance classes are also offered to young children on Friday evenings at 5pm.
