A Co Monaghan Transition Year class due to stage a production of the famous musical Les Miserables this week has come together for a virtual performance.

The students from St Macartan's College were due to go on stage last night, but due to the coronavirus pandemic they had to postpone their production.

However, together with their teacher and director Ms Cathy Kirke, they produced an online performance of 'One Day More'.

Principal of St Macartan's College in Monaghan Raymond McHugh said there has been a great reaction to the video.

He said the students started rehearsals in September and have continued in recent weeks to practise online through various social media apps. 

Mr McHugh said the "show will go on" but it may not happen until later in the year.

He praised the talented students and their teacher Ms Kirke for all their effort.
