Following on from their performance with Three Tenors Ireland in The Solstice Theatre last month the boys and girls from the Ard Rí Community National School Senior Choir, under conductor Ms Eimear Donnelly, performed at the School Choir Festival in The National Basketball Arena in Tallaght on Tuesday 07.03.2017. The school is delighted to have taken part in this festival which has been running for over fifty years. The boys and girls gave rousing renditions of a medley of traditional Irish songs and a their version of Katy Perry Firework had the audience on their feet dancing. The school choir at Ard Rí CNS, Navan has gone from strength to strength and rehearsals have already begun for The Navan Choral Festival in May.
