Across The Waves


Performers form Ardnashee School and college brought live music, digital drama and dance to celebrate the legacy of Colmcille. ‘Across the Waves’, written and produced by the schools EA music tutor Paul Cutliffe, told the story of Colmcille’ s journey form Derry to Toraigh Island and was filled with lots of local humour and original music. The cast included students from ASC alongside singers and musicians from St. Cecilia’s College, St. Patricks and St. Brigid’s College, Thornhill College, St. Patricks Primary School. St. Johns Primary School and St Anne’s Primary School. The orchestra was comprised of EA music tutors and local artists, some of whom are also parents of children in the school.

Choreographed by Carie Logue-Houston and Mr Paddy Nash, local fil-maker, this magical piece was our first opportunity to unlock creativity after a challenging period of lockdown and what a way to celebrate in a wonderful outdoor venue, The Playtrail amphitheatre, on the doorstep of our school.

Many thanks to Derry and Donegal County Councils’ Colmcille 1500 project for funding this event.
