Organised annually by Gael Linn for Irish medium second-level schools nationwide, and funded by Foras na Gaeilge, Scléip is a celebration of contemporary music, song, dance ‘as Gaeilge’. The final was held recently in the Clasach theatre, Clontarf and almost 300 star-struck students, who had qualified through preliminary rounds before Christmas, were on stage during the event!
