Cnoc na Rós fainne presentations

Cumann Gaelach Chnoc na Rós ended another successful year of Irish langauge night classes with the presentation of fainne pins to learners.

The presentation took place in St Anne’s Primary School last week after the last class of the year.

Those who received the fainne pins - a symbol of proficiency in the language - had to sit an oral exam where they were asked questions on a range of topics. The oral exam was co-ordinated by Clár Ní Chnáimhsí.

Seven students, including a number of children, took part in the exams and received their fainne badges.

The presentation closed the 22nd year of Irish language classes organised by Cnoc na Rós and the 23rd year is set to begin in St Anne’s in September.

The committee members of Cumann Gaelach Chnoc na Rós have also thanked the St Anne’s principal, Jacinta Bradley, for her continued support of the Irish classes.

They also thanked the team of volunteer teachers who give up the time to teach Irish each week and all those who attended the classes throughout the year.
