Gaelscoil Bharra's push up Top Ten music charts

• COMHGHAIRDEAS: Gaelscoil Bharra have reached number 7 in the Irish charts

• COMHGHAIRDEAS: Gaelscoil Bharra have reached number 7 in the Irish charts

SINN FÉIN President Gerry Adams has sent a hearty “comhghairdeas” to the pupils, staff and parents of Gaelscoil Bharra in Cabra who, along with Dublin-based rhythm and roots band Tupelo, have reached number 7 in the Irish charts with ‘Cá bhfuil ár Scoil’. And Gerry urged everyone to buy the single online or in the shops to make it an even bigger success.
Gaelscoil Bharra is an Irish-language school which was founded 14 years ago and today has over 220 pupils.
Gerry Adams said this week:
“I’ve visited Scoil Bharra a number of times and can testify to the great efforts by the school management and parents and local representatives, to get successive Ministers for Education to deliver permanent buildings for the children.
“What value the Celtic Tiger when this fine school is still housed in prefabs which are overcrowded, poorly heated and where sanitation is second-rate?”

• Tupelo played The Village on 22 October with all proceeds from the gig going to the school.
The single can be purchased via www.myspace.com/tupelomusicireland and www.downloadmusic.ie/tupelo as well as from the iTunes store.
Physical copies are available from Tower Records in Dublin.
All proceeds from Tupelo’s single go to support the campaign.
