Young people take to the street telling stories!

11 February 2011 No Comments by The Northern Standard

IT never happened before in Blayney, not even once upon a time….but next Thursday (Feb 17th) there will be up to seventy young students from the Central School, Scoil Mhuire na mBuachailli, and Scoil Cailini, taking to the streets and meeting people to ply their ability in telling yarns!.
They are already calling the promised unique occasion “Blether’s Day” and claim the town will be awash with youthful ‘blethers” on the day—not to mention the few older ones that are habitually around!
Since the beginning of the school term, three senior classes at The Central School, Scoil Mhuire na mBuachaillí, and Scoil nCailiní were learning how to gather, and equip themselves to tell stories—and now they’re ready to show what they can do!.
Between 11 a.m. and 12 noon, many of the students involved will be out and about in small groups of three or four, at various locations around the town, offering to tell stories to the people they meet!. They might even ask the public to tell them a tale or two in return!
The project, which is being co-ordinated by the manager of Castleblayney Community Enterprise Centre, Tommy McGuire, comprises part of the “One Community Different Cultures” project, which is a joint initiative between Castleblayney Enterprise Centre and both Castleblayney College and Our Lady’s Secondary School.
