Ar an 15ú Márta beidh taispeántas ealaíne lasmuigh ag léiriú ábhair ó dhaltaí Scoil Náisiúnta Cheathrú Thaidhg in iar-thuaisceart Mhaigh Eo ar an téama Dordán Dúlra agus tabhacht na timpeallachta. Le titim na hoíche beidh na híomhanna le feiceáil, lasta le soilse speisialta, ar scáileán ollmhór os comhar an lucht féachana i gclós na scoile. Ócáid speisialta atá ann don chlann uilig.

These delightful, original artworks – 32 in all – are by pupils ages 5 to 13, of Ceathrú Thaidhg primary school in beautiful north west County Mayo, based on the theme of nature and the importance of our green and marine environments for the 'Dordán Dúlra Nature's Call" St Patrick's Day celebrations. The outdoor art exhibition will be projected using special lighting on to an outdoor screen at nightfall. In keeping with the environmental theme and the celebration of Ireland's national feast day some of the public buildings in Ceathrú Thaidhg such as An Seanscoil (The Old School) will also be lit up in green.

Music by Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, "The Cat in the Corner – John Naughton's Jig.
