In pictures: Trad for Trócaire 2014 launches at Sligo Fleadh
18 Aug 2014
“At the Fleadh you are in the real core of Ireland: its culture, music and open heart. These are people of Ireland at their best. Focal as Gaeilge: Bhain me an-taitneamh go deo as an Fleadh. Iontach suimiuil agus spreaguil. Ta croi Trócaire ann.”
-Geraldine McDermot, Trócaire Volunteer
The Trad for Trócaire team was out in force at the Sligo Fleadh this weekend. Musicians, dancers and singers donned their blue Trad for Trócaire t-shirts and entertained the crowds with sessions all over the town.
Music fans: Organise your own Trad event with Trad for Trócaire #T4T
Trad for Trócaire is a fundraising and music week run by Trócaire and Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann that celebrates traditional Irish music, while raising funds to support Trócaire’s work to help poor communities overcome poverty across the developing world.
Music is powerful, but a Trad for Trócaire seisiún has the power to change lives.
Please play your part this year by organising a Trad session, and raising funds to support people in some of the world’s poorest countries with Irish music and song.
