Transition Year students from Coláiste Bhríde, Carnew, held their spectacular annual drama night last week.

Months of hard work went into two shows. They performed one act play 'Through the Wire' and a slightly different version of 'Waking Ned'.

The sell-out shows were a big hit with the audience. They enjoyed the students spectacular acting and the range of songs they performed.

The first to take to the stage was the cast for 'Through the Wire', a one act play which focuses on the inmates at a Birmingham jail. It was the first time acting for majority of the students on the stage. Emma Mooney and Eoin McMahon were notably fantastic, along with Alex Byrne and Alanna Davidson.

Songs, which were sung throughout the play, were adapted to suit the narrative. Favourites such as 'House of Fun' and 'Wanna Be' featured in the play.

After the interval, a reinvented version of 'Waking Ned' took to the stage. Tom Mordaunt, who played Jackie O'Shea, set the tone for the whole show. He delivered his lines with great timing and was highly entertaining.
