The BRIT School in London has become famous over the last few years for producing many UK chart stars such as Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Kate Nash, Adele and Katie Melua. It was also the starting point for Dan Gillespie Sells and Richard Jones of The Feeling in their rise towards the summit of the recording industry. The group – many of whom have Irish heritage – came together as a band doing cover versions at a ski resort in the Alps and indeed took their name from a bar in Paris. 2006 was the highpoint for the Feeling as their debut album Twelve Stops and Home had sales in excess of 1.5 million and singles such as “Sewn”, “Fill My Little World” and “Never Be Lonely” all became Top ten hits. Lead singer Dan Gillespie Sells is the product of County Mayo parents and as such the Feeling are delighted to be playing The Royal Theatre Castlebar on Saturday November 29 in what is sure to be a sold-out show.

The original idea for Imprints came from Lola Donoghue (art teacher at St Colman’s). When her submission for a creative engagement project with Leaving Cert Applied students for their visual art class was accepted, she got Pat Keane (deputy principal) on board to guide the project through his native Claremorris from an historical and cultural perspective. Fotissima Photography, which comprises Lola Donoghue and Majella Kelly, were the collaborating artists involved. All equipment was supplied by them and students were taught the basic principles of photography, from the creative to the technical. They followed through the project from the shooting stage to the digital processing on computers and the eventual framing and presentation of the work.
