Spink Comhaltas has been preparing students for the SCT exams for the last 4 years, and David is the first Spink member to successfully complete the final Advanced Performance grade in April 2017.
This Advanced Performance grade involves a 45 minute recital of traditional Irish music. 2017 has been a busy year in music for David – his group Fiúntas won the silver medal position in the prestigious Siansa Gael Linn competition in April.
The presentation of the Mícheál Ó hEidhin Medals took place as part of the Comhaltas Annual Congress in An Cultúrlann. Monkstown, Co Dublin, and a total of 16 winners were presented with their medal by Oisín Mac Diarmada, the Music Director of the SCT Examinations.
