This marks the 15th anniversary of the formation of CEIST (Catholic Education An Irish Schools' Trust) and the signing of the charter in which the school is based on.

The values of all CEIST schools are summarised in the CEIST Charter: Promoting Spiritual and Human Development, Achieving Quality in Teaching and Learning, Showing Respect for Every Person, Creating Community and Being Just and Responsible.

Ms Lucey kicked off the Ceiliúradh celebrations with the lighting of the CEIST candle on Tuesday morning.

Both students and staff are thrilled to mark 15 years since our CEIST Charter was signed.

The vision of CEIST is to provide a compassionate and just society inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Over the past 15 years and more our students and staff have done an exceptional job in promoting and undergoing the CEIST values which is the beacon of our schools ethos.

To celebrate the important day there were numerous activities planned. First, Second, and Third Year students enjoyed a visit to the cinema, TY students climbed Strickeen, LCA students went to the Caddyshack for a spot of golf followed by hot chocolate, Fifth Years enjoyed a walk and some pizza, while Sixth Years had afternoon tea.

Killarney Musical Society has revealed that the renowned Keith Dwyer Greene will take the lead role in ‘Michael Collins A Musical Drama’.

The society is in the final stages of preparation  for  its March 5 to 7 performances at the INEC.

Final rehearsals are in full flight at the Heights Hotel and earlier this week Keith Dwyer Greene arrived in full costume.

He had spent the day with the army’s The Band 1 Brigade of The Irish Defence Forces, where he is a full-time flautist.

He is also co-owner and founder of The Bellevue Academy of Performing Arts.

Keith trained in music and musical theatre in University College Cork and The Cork School Of Music.

“He has performed with many musical societies and had many great leading roles. He worked with the late Bryan Flynn who wrote the book, music and lyrics of ‘Michael Collins A Musical Drama’. He has great admiration for him and says what he did with this show is genius. Keith says he adores the role of Michael Collins,” explained PRO Linda O’Donoghue.

Flynn’s book, music and lyrics can only be secured by two musical society’s each year.
Michael Collins A Musical Drama is a moving, dynamic, resonant piece of musical theatre.

It is the dramatization of a changing period of Irelands history. It brings to life The 1916 Rising, The War Of Independence and The Civil War.

“At the same time it is telling an intimate, human love story and how love and politics inflamed the period. This musical drama has war, heroism, love, villainy, tragedy and triumph all wrapped up. It has a distinctly Irish voice. Such numbers as ‘Fly the flag of Freedom ‘ will have the hairs standing on the back of your neck and ‘Every Heart Awaken ‘ will bring tears to your eyes,” added Linda.

Tickets available at The INEC box office and from a pop-up box office at The Laurels Bar, Market Cross from 12 noon to 4pm on Friday and Saturday this week.
