Scoil Mhuire has been taking part in and hosting the local Feile Drámaíochta for well over twenty years. Children perform in Irish plays either competitively or non- competitively. Those in competition, if successful are nominated to go forward to the Regional Competition, which until this year was held in the Taibhdhearc Theatre in Galway- home of the Druid Theatre group and performances through Irish for several decades. However due to a fire at the theatre this year’s competition was held in the Linenhall Theatre in Castlebar. The All Ireland Féile has been held in the Art Centre in Mullingar for the past few years but prior to that was held in St. Patrick’s college in Drumcondra for many years.

Scoil Mhuire is a regular participant at all Ireland level. The féile drámaíochtain Scoil Mhuire has long been considered a valuable tool for the promotion of the Irish language. Many local schools attend and participate in the Féile Drámaíochta in Scoil Mhuire. Adjudicators in the past have included retired schools inspector Proinsias Ó Maolmhuaidh, Br. Bonaventure Frain, An tUasal Seán Mac Eoin, An Tuasal Séamus Mac Cormaic and An tUasal Séamus Ó Dufaigh.   Many of these are officials within the Cumann Náisiúnta (National organisation) The children love the stage and Scoil Mhuire is lucky to have such a wonderful hall and stage with state of the art sound and lighting equipment. It also has a collection of beautiful backdrops, which were added to this year by local artist and one of our parents Stephanie Cuddy Cullen.
 
 

Is cuid an-tabhactach de shaol Scoil Mhuire í an Fhéile Drámaíochta. Glacann gach rang ó rang a haon go rang a sé páirt san fhéile agus is breá leis na daltaí a bheith páirteach. Is breá leo smidiú agus cultacha éagsúla a chaitheamh agus is deacair cur síos a dhéanamh ar an méid feabhais a thagann ar a gcuid gaeilge labhartha. Tugtar duaiseanna do gach rang a ghlacann páirt. Is iad na príomh rialacha ata ag an gCumann Scoildramaíochta ná gur cóir do gach drama a bheith tríocha móiméad ar a mhéad. Tá an comórtaas roinnte in oaoisghrúpanna éagsúla ionas go mbeidh na haoiseanna céanna I gcomórtas le chéile. Uaireanta scriobhann na múinteoirí iad féin na drámaí agus uaireanta úsáidtear drámaí atá in eagar cheanna féin.
