See GALLERY: Santa as Gaelige i nDún na nGall inné

Santa joins the Gaelscoil na gCeithre Maistirí for their Christmas Party on Sunday afternoon

Santa arrived in Donegal town once again on Sunday afternoon but this was for a totally different occasion - the big man wanted to meet with all the young Gaelgoiri's and their parents and also to learn a cupla focal himself.

The Gaelscoil who are celebrating fiche bhlian ag fás in Donegal and still awaiting a new school had every type of activity for the children and it really was great to see the children teaching their parents a little bit of the teanga beo.

Paula McNelis of the McNelis Cunnigham School of Dance came along with her troupe of dancers and put on a great display of dancing who were joined by Santa, Riverdance's lead dancer Amy Mae Dolan and her sister, Scarlett who is one of Pauls's pupils.

Amymae started dancing at the age of two years of age and her parent's aspirations were that she would go on and study medicine but she caught the Riverdance bug. She is now in rehearsal for the Riverdance gala in the 02 which celebrates 25years of the show,

There is no doubt that with this organisation at grassroots level Donegal will be producing many world-class dancers for many years to come.

The committee would like to express their sincere thanks to the Donegal Credit Union for their ongoing support.
