A former pupil of Bunscoil Phobal Feirste, who was fluent in Scottish and Irish Gaelic worked with the company in different productions and workshops, thus adding greatly to the accessibility of their productions and workshops to children from Irish-medium schools. The story was toured to Gaelic-medium schools in Ireland and Scotland.
