WraPParound 2016 - University College Cork

Our rap group ‘St. Aidans Boyys ‘participated in WRaPParound 2016 in University College Cork on Thursday, 5th May in the Boole 2 Theatre. The boys preformed their rap ‘Time’ and were a phenomenal success. The audience were invited to get involved and the response was fantastic - everybody was singing and rapping the chorus ‘ Make the most out of everything you have the key to a happy life, from the start of education to your graduation it’s amazing how far we’ve come’.

‘Time’ is about working hard throughout your life to succeed, achieve your goals and live a happy life. As the boys said in their rap, ‘This is your life, so don't be looking at me you control your future and what you want to be’. It was wonderful to see so much success and happiness among the 10 schools taking part in WRaPParound. You can watch the video of their performance below.

Thanks to Garry McCarthy who helped the boys write and perform their rap and a big thanks to the organisers JCSP, Poetry Ireland and PDST. A great day was had by all the boys and they are looking forward to performing at Dublin Culture Night in September and to WRaPParound 2017.
