The Ballad of D.N.S.
Mark Howard, who is a teaching in Delgany N.S. since 1989, taught the children of 5th Class all about the opening of the new school building in 1991 as well as history about Delgany. The children learned all about St. Mocheróg and the red soil of Delgany. They then studied rhyming couplets and each child composed a poem about the history of D.N.S. Mr Howard compiled the individual poems into one poem. Gloria Smyth, our secretary, composed music to accompany the lyrics and the Ballad of D.N.S. was born! Covid regulations meant that all practices and final recording were done outside. The final version of the ballad can be viewed here. It was played for all to enjoy during the church service on Friday 11th June. Thanks to Róisín Mulligan for creating the video.
