How Trad music can change lives

By Lauren O’Kelly

In September and October, wonderful people held hundreds of Trad for Trócaire sessions up and down the island of Ireland.

Millstreet Community College Trad for Trocaire event

Students in Millstreet Community School  were certainly demonstrating how hard work and commitment combined with music can certainly make a difference and change the lives of others. 

So many people gave their time, energy and amazing talent, to bring ceoil agus craic to towns, villages and cities across the country – raising awareness and invaluable funds for Trócaire’s work in developing countries.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all who took part in organising the events, and everyone who came along to support them. 

See the difference your support of Trad for Trócaire makes. 

In September, they held a Trad for Trócaire event which raised an impressive €375.00! The event was attended by many guests, as well as some exceptionally talented students including the winners of the Gerald Whelan Memorial Cup Grupa Ceoil (15-18 years) and the under-18 winners of the Fleadh Cheoil half-set.

There are still a few more sessions in the coming days in Belfast, Derry, Tipperary, Meath, Roscommon, Longford, Limerick and Kildare.

Check out the latest Trad for Trócaire listings to find your local session.

Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in this year’s Trad for Trócaire

Go raibh mile maith agat!
