Poetry Aloud is an annual poetry speaking competition open to all post-primary students in Ireland. It is organised by Poetry Ireland and the National Library of Ireland. The competition seeks to celebrate the joy of speaking and listening to poetry. Each year our students work with their mentor teacher with the aim of reciting a selection of poems clearly, with expression and complete fluency. This year, Dara Ní Chonaill, a second year student on our school team qualified for the final of the competition which took place in the National Library of Ireland in Dublin.
