RTÉ Mass 2016

FaceBook  Twitter  

On Sunday 13th March 2016, the Faythe School Rock Choir, nearly 3½ years after applying, were invited to appear on RTÉs Sunday Service. For a few weeks before the Mass rehearsals went into over-drive with sessions on Sundays as well as the usual Monday evenings. Ian, Tricia and Mr. Turner were joined by Ms. Kehoe and Ms. O'Connor before Tricia played her 'trump card' in inviting Catherine 'Biddy' Walsh up to the school to put the Choir through their paces.

Fr.James was an ever present over these last few weeks before RTÉ came to the school on 2nd March for a full 'run-through.' The final piece of the puzzle fell into place when Joe Bradshaw from Danone came up trumps with sponsoring a new set of 'shocking pink' hoodies for the girls and blue ones for the dynamic duo.

Despite the early departure for Dublin ......6.30am...the Choir behaved impeccably all day long and were a credit to both their families and all involved with the Choit.
They should be justifiably very proud of their performance.

There are five clips shown below for your delectation!! Enjoy!
