The trouble with attempting these things is that too little information is given about context. This is important because the Irish language has a lot more subtleties in it than has English and therefore context is required for the best translation.
However, here are some suggestions;
The school of Lost Creek/Scoil an Atha Cheilte(Skull unn
ah-ha kell-teh : short "a's", guttural "k" sound). I'm translating this as hidden/ceilte rather than lost/caillte which means something possessed which has been lost.
The piper school/Scoil an Phíobaire (Skull unn feeb-irr-eh). Presuming this means a person who plays the bagpipes as an instrument, not a plumber or an oil rigger.
Dance of the Herons/Damhsa na gCorr (Dao-sah nuh gurr).
I hope this helps you out.
