Lá Féile Pádraig Sona Daoibh!! We're nearing the end of Seachtain na Gaeilge and preparing ourselves to go green tomorrow! KidCast is throwing on their Irish dancing shoes, ready to join the party!

Annabelle (11) hosts this special bilingual episode. She attends Gaescoil Chill Dara, which is just as well as Céire’s Irish is a little rusty!

The show kicks off celebrating some good Irish news stories from Éabha (11) and Luke (9). Then Annabelle is off to join Michelle (11) from Inis Meáin. They share a love of drama and the violin but are there any differences between island and mainland living?

Game Time on KidCast this week brings us up to the north of Ireland to Reuben (11) in Derry. Reuben is a wonderful tin whistle player and challenges Annabelle and our listeners to guess his song choices with a few notes from each.

Some students from Dramatic Action in Maynooth are bringing some St Patrick’s Day drama to the show this week, with their special bilingual dramatisation of the story.

We hear from some interesting facts about traditional Irish music, instruments and dance from some young musicians from Glenflask Comhaltas and more of our KidCast friends.

Finally, Annabelle catches up with Múinteoir Ray from the Home School Hub to find out about life after teaching children on the TV.
