Please check out this lovely footage of the Hacketstown NS MGC violin class performing during the school’s end-of-year concert, alongside their MGC teacher Marita Nolan. The students have only been playing the violin since the beginning of 2014 and are an excellent demonstration of what MGC’S Encore programme represents.
Over 24 primary schools participated on the Encore programme this year, availing of high-quality Early Years, Choral, Recorder and Violin tuition and we are looking forward to starting year 2 of the Encore progamme in September. Please check out the link below!

Here is some wonderful footage of our recent Trad Gala Concert held in The Dolmen Hotel Carlow on the 14th May 2014.
Participants on the night included groups from our two Trad Hubs in Carlow and Borris, as well as some really talented up and coming musicians from around Carlow.
On the night the children and young people performed a variety of Traditional Irish music, assisted by their talented teachers. The evening closed with a wonderful group performance by our MGC Trad Orchestra which has grown from strength to strength since it was founded in September 2013.
Trad music in Carlow is fast becoming one of the most popular genres of music and it is incredibly exciting to see so many children and young people enjoying both the performance and social aspects of our MGC Trad Hubs.
Have a listen to this brilliant footage below filmed by Brian Hand!
