Scoil Acla Aeraíocht – Open Air Concert
At the end of the the Scoil Acla Music Summer School we host our ‘Aeraíocht’.This is an open air concert where the class participants in the music, song and dance classes perform the material they have learned during the week. It is always a fantastic day of pride for students, parents and the Scoil Acla organising committee. The Aeraíocht is opened by the sound of the Achill Pipers as they march to the stage. The Scoil Acla flag is then raised by either the oldest person in the village of Dooagh or a visiting dignitary.
Since the Scoil Acla relaunch in 1985, this event has had to be relocated indoors only once – a true sign that the Gods look down on us and our efforts!!!
