TrócaireLive raises the roof

Trócaire supporters and campaigners raised the roof on Saturday at the annual ‘TrócaireLive’  gig at Dublin’s Grand Social.

A packed-out crowd heard some of the best up and coming Irish bands, as well as getting a flavour of dancers and musicians from Uganda, Nigeria and the Philippines.

The gig was organised in order to shine a spotlight on Trócaire’s campaigning work throughout the world.

Trócaire sees real results from its campaigning work on issues like climate change, Palestine, aid and hunger.  These results wouldn’t happen without the activism of our supporters.

Today FM’s Paul McLoone was the MC for the night, introducing performances by Fred, The Hot Sprockets, Katie Kim, Daniel Scannell, Dembe Troupe dancers, Talking Drums and Manila Rhythm.

Food on the night was provided by The Silk Road Café, whose delicious Middle Eastern food really went down a storm.

A big thanks to everybody who could make it on the night…and here’s to another successful year of working together for a just world!
