Transition Year Students from Monaghan go viral with ‘virtual musical’

A group of Transition Year Students from Monaghan have gone viral with their ‘virtual musical’.

The students from St. Macartan’s College in Monaghan Town were to have their first performance of Les Mis on Tuesday however the measures in place due to Covid 19 meant it was cancelled.

They were encouraged by director and music teacher Cathy Kirke, to mark opening night by performing ‘One Day More’ from their homes and posting it online.

The video has since been shared on various social media platforms, as well as featuring on RTE last night.

Speaking to Northern Sound News Ms. Kirke said it has lifted spirits and hopes they can still put the show on in the future:
