As part of the project students were given the opportunity to give feedback on the project via a video diary and here are some of the comments they made:

  • Most of the students mentioned that they learned something about the history of Irish music, song and dance. Some found it very interesting while others found it taxing but most mentioned that it was kept short and concise.
  • All of the students felt that the overall programme was the ‘best bit’. They were very proud of what they had accomplished over the week. Most found the grounds and the Museum a great venue for this type of event. Many said they would love to come back and do something like this again.
