As part of the Kilkenny Music Festival, the ever-popular school choirs competition was hosted by Kilkenny CBS for the second year in a row.

With most of the Kilkenny City schools represented as well as choirs from Castlecomer CS and Wesley College in Dublin, the standard was very high and a sizeable audience were treated to some highly entertaining performances. Competitors ranged from first year to senior cycle.

The judges had some hard work to do in several categories. The first of hundreds of participants took the stage at 3pm and the talent was showcased until well into the evening.

The CBS is proud to open its doors to everyone involved and congratulate all winners and indeed every student who took part. We extend our appreciation to all of our own CBS students who were involved, and special mention to Mandy Dowling-O’ Brien, Catriona Evison, Mary Meaney, Ann Walsh and all others who worked hard to ensure the smooth running of the event.
