Abstract: This thesis documents and assesses the musical activity at Scoil Éanna from 1908-1916, in terms of cultural nationalist influence and agenda. It also looks at the musical activity of Pádraig Pearse, again documenting, and considering the influences on his work and the possible influence of this on the school. As well as giving a general overview of the school, the music curriculum and teachers, music in the dramatic activities and music in the extra-curricular events is examined and shown to be predominantly nationalist in its outlook. Furthermore, this thesis shows musical life at Scoil Éanna to be a microcosm of the larger cultural programme then in evidence at the school, and potentially beyond this.
