Funded by Foras na Gaeilge, Scléip is for Irish medium second-level schools nationwide to participate in and show off their talents for competition.

After the preliminary rounds that took place before Christmas, 300 students qualified for the final that was held in the Clasach theatre, Clontarf, Dublin on Wednesday, January 29.

Of these 300 talented students, four Coláiste Cois Life students were awarded first place in the junior section of the Pop/Rock singing group category. These students include, Caoimhe Garvin, Helen Nic Cárthaigh, Liam Walsh and Daithí Ó hArrachtáin.
