It was another fantastic week in Kilmovee at the 7th Annual Seosamh Mac Gabhann Summer School. 200 pupils attended from Australia, USA, Canada, France, Spain and all over Ireland.
Feedback from everyone that attended was that they really enjoyed the week and the personal attention each pupil gets, the option to do Morning and Afternoon classes, which is only available at this Summer School, followed by the Evening Sessions where every pupil gets the chance to join in. Another aspect of the Summer School that was very much appreciated was the great value for money, with classes for the week just €55 for under U18s and access to some of the finest tutors in Ireland as well as all Talks, Concerts and Sessions being free to attend. The week was made possible due to the work of the Summer School Committee, the many Volunteers and the staff of the Kilmovee Community Centre and Family Resource Centre.
