Students from a number of Donegal schools were in Belfast recently to take part in the first ever Beo event held in the North.

Beo is a school talent competition created by TY students at Coláiste Ailigh, Letterkenny, to help promote the Irish language through music

The Belfast gig was held in the Oh Yeah! Centre in Belfast, a venue well known for its promotion of young Irish bands, and named after a song made famous by the band Ash.

Special guests included Linda Ervine, the Irish language development officer of the Belfast area, and Gordon McCoy, a member of the organisation Ultach, who has assisted in the development of the Irish language in Unionist areas of the city.

Schools attending from Donegal included: Coláiste Ailigh, Letterkenny, Loreto Letterkenny, Deele College, Raphoe, Pobalscoil Ghaoth Dobhair, Errigal College, Letterkenny and St. Eunans College.

They were joined by St. Malachy’s and Gaelcholáiste Feirste, both schools in Belfast.
