Our Leaving Cert and 5th year Irish students recently went to see Máiréad Ní Ghráda’s play An Triail in the Excel Arts theatre, Thurles. This classic play is part of the Irish language curriculum on the Leaving Certificate course. Ní Ghráda’s groundbreaking play explores the hypocracies inherent in Catholic sixties Ireland. Her heroine Máire becomes pregnant by a married man and then attempts to do the impossible and keep her baby. Thanks to Ms. Murphy and Ms. Kennedy for organising this trip.
