The performance was by the students of St Patrick's High School, Angamaly, Kerala, India. They had travelled the six hour journey from Angamaly to Coonoor to perform the dance and to take part in an India Day celebration at the Patrician school in Coonoor: St Joseph's Higher Secondary School.

greenarrow Bishop Daniel Delany 200th
During 2014 the Brigidine Sisters, the Patrician Brothers, and the Bishop Delany family around the world, will be commemorating the 200th anniversary of his death. He died in the early hours of the 9th July, 1814, in his Irish parish of Tullow. As priests of his time and historians since have acknowledged, Bishop Delany and his achievements have been somewhat underestimated and under-appreciated. Because of his efforts diocesan priests, Brigidine Sisters, and Patrician Brothers, have taken the Catholic faith and education all across the globe. No mean achievement in its own right, but when you consider he did it all in the dark shadow of 18th and 19th century Penal days, then his efforts are miraculous. A testament to his vision, his courage, and his complete faith that God would provide. This video on his life was made, in the most part, using the artwork of the students of Brigidine and Patrician colleges who participated in the 2013 Delany International Art Competition. 12m 24sec
