'Dancing at Lughnasa' Auditions

'Dancing at Lughnasa' Auditions

We invite you to join us on this magical journey of memory, illusion and dancing.

'Dancing at Lughnasa' is a powerful play set in the summer of 1936, the last time the five Irish Mundy sisters were together. It is a summer of changes. Uncle Jack returns from a long mission in Abyssinia, their first radio brings music into the home and a young man with a lust for adventure returns for a visit. 'Dancing at Lughnasa' is a story told by the youngest sister’s son, whose memories of this fateful summer transports the audience back in time to meet these strong women and their family. He says at the end, “What fascinates me about that memory is that it owes nothing to fact. In that memory atmosphere is more real than incident and everything is simultaneously actual and illusory…Dancing as if language no longer exists because words were no longer necessary.” We invite you to join us on this magical journey of memory, illusion and dancing.

Both our Boys and Girls 1st year Futsal teams had an excellent day at the Inishowen Secondary Schools Futsal tournament held at Aileach FC Astro Pitch.

The Carndonagh CS girls were up against Crana College first. Two goals from Emma Devlin and one from Chloe Lacey had them 3-0 up at half time. In the 2nd half Katherine Doherty and Alaina Keogh completed the scoring to ensure a 5-0 victory.

Next up they played against Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana. The girls put in an exceptional performance in this game and Lorinne Green and Alaina Keogh scored two spectacular goals to give the girls a great start. The hardworking Emma Devlin added two more before the break to give the girls a 4-0 lead at half-time. Scoil Mhuire put it up to the girls in the 2nd half but Yasmin Crumlish was a very calming presence in goals, ensuring they couldn't find a way back into the game. Chloe Lacey popped up with two clinical finishes in the second half to make the final score 6-0 to Carndonagh Community School. This ensured the girls reached the Ulster Futsal finals on November 14th and Mr Conor Doherty and Ms Anita Doherty were delighted with their efforts.
