Altan singer and fiddle player Maireád Ní Mhaonaigh is set to lead the celebration’s at Letterkenny’s Irish-speaking primary school, Gaelscoil Adhamnáin, when the school marks its twentieth anniversary today.
From it’s humble beginnings in a car park to the modern building at Glencar, there are now almost 400 pupils and 19 teachers at the school.
RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta is set to broadcast from the school today and a special prayer service and blessing will start the anniversary celebrations.
Special guest Maireád Ní Mhaonaigh will launch a CD of songs recorded by pupils for the occasion.
And there will be fun and festivities throughout the day (and apparently no homework later, according to sources).
We will have pix and nuacht from the day later this evening.
