Curracloe Music Group
Curracloe National School is privileged to have retired school teacher Martha Torpey teach music to the children in the school. Martha has a life time of experience in traditional music and has been teaching music since 1974.
Martha visits the school every week and teaches music during school hours. She is accompanied by her daughter Marie Torpey B.Mus, B.Ed., a qualified and experienced music teacher. Children start with the tin whistle and then have an opportunity to advance to other instruments including fiddle, flute, button accordion, etc. She also offers after-school music lessons for all children from second class upwards from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m.
Over the last few years the children have participated and done very well in the Junior Féile in Carrick-on-Bannow.
