Class 2 play - the King of Ireland's Son

29 October 2020

Class 2 rose to the occasion and performed their play 'The King of Ireland's Son' - the story of a young man on an adventurous quest with the help of animals and friends in the deep woods. After losing a bet with the Enchanter of the Back-Lands, he has a year and a day to find the Enchanter's castle and pluck three hairs from his beard, otherwise he will lose his life. Facing many tricks and challenges, he finally succeeds, travelling on a journey of swans, wild birds, steeds to meet the three daughters of the King. The King of Ireland's Son succeeds, winning not only the hand of his beloved Fedelma, but the hearts of the small audience watching too! The children played percussion and lyre, and dressed in colourful costumes on decorative sets.
