Our students are studying the play 'An Triail' by Máiréad Ní Ghráda for higher level Leaving Cert.   6th year students attended a production by the company Fíbín in the Axis Theatre, Ballymun recently.  This was an excellent performance, telling the story of a young single and pregnant girl in Ireland of the 1960's.  The drama painted a picture for us of how this young girl was treated by family, friends and society at the time.  It raised serious moral questions and allowed the audience to form their own conclusions.  The students really enjoyed the performance and we are confident that it will afford them a greater understanding of the social context of the drama and help them formulate in-depth answers to exam questions.
