Gael­choláiste Chiar­raí cook­ing up a storm at big fundraiser

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS -

GAEL­CHOLÁISTE Chiar­raí had two rea­sons to cel­e­brate at a big fundrais­ing night in The Mead­ow­lands Ho­tel in Tralee on Thurs­day – apart from the Christ­mas sea­son, the school also show­cased its plans for its new school build­ing on a great night that en­joyed wide­spread sup­port.

Or­gan­ised by the Par­ents’ Coun­cil of the school, the event had at its core a cook­ery demon­stra­tion by chef Frank Moyni­han, who de­liv­ered no end of key tips on the of­ten tricky sub­ject of fes­tive cook­ing. Given the time of year, they were hang­ing on Frank’s every word and move­ment in the in­ter­est of cook­ing up an even greater Christ­mas smor­gas­bord than usual.

As ever it was the stu­dents of the Gael­choláiste who stole the show – not least the tal­ented mu­si­cians who opened the event, in­clud­ing harpist Eve Ní Chríodáin, pic­tured be­low right. Plans for the new school drew great in­ter­est, which the Par­ents’ Coun­cil said it is very much look­ing for­ward to see­ing open in Septem­ber 2020.
