In Pictures: Killenard NS go blue and yellow for O’Dempsey’s

Brought to you in association with Portarlington Credit Union 

We had serious craic in Killenard NS yesterday.

We ventured over to East Laois where the boys and girls sang us their County Final song.

Over 400 students packed into the school hall for their own unique take on Geroge Ezra’s summer hit – ‘Shotgun’.

The song was co-written by Mr Davis and Ms Gately and was performed with some gusto by the students.

This is the second Laois school to remix the popular song – as Camross NS did the same last week.

Principal Mr Stephen Donovan was teaching in Bracknagh in Offaly where they won the final last year and he is hoping to bring the same fortune to O’Dempsey’s.

The school itself is extremely connected to the players on the O’Dempsey’s team – as every single one of them attended Killenard NS as children.

Our photographer Julie Anne Miller was on hand to snap the kids as they gathered in the school hall.
