Take a look at the short film created to celebrate the project : Roscommon Schools Óenach (Parts 1-3 combined )
Here are just a few examples of stories and pictures from Scoil na nAingeal Naofa NS, Boyle. They scripted a play, a story as exciting as any of the old Irish stories, designed costumes and decorated props, and performed the play for me over Zoom. It was brilliant!
- Praise poem (Eoin.)
- Praise poem (Aaron)
- Praise poem (Jonah)
- Praise poem (Jack)
- The Story of Queen Mebh
- A blast from the past
- The story of the Tain
- Illustrations for Queen Mebh’s story
- Clay models of early medieval jewellery
- The Tain
Below are some of the special ‘action poems’ , simple versions of Rosc style poetry. They tell of chariot racing and battles very effectively. Click on the links to read them.
There is still time for more stories, poetry and designs to be added to the Feasting Hall. I will add a further selection of work to this gallery before long.
