The boys and girls of Killeigh NS enjoyed a real treat today as the men and women of the Army Band of 4 Western Brigade joined us from Custume Barracks Athlone,  for a performance. The army band last joined us two years ago and the children couldn't wait for today's performance when news of the visit leaked during the week. 

The children got to learn about each of the instruments that made up the band and the musicians gave a demonstration of each instrument. They also performed a familiar selection of tunes which delighted the boys and girls. They even managed to sing along to quite a few of them.

We are so grateful to the Army Band for visiting us again today and we look forward to their return in the future.
