01/10/2010 TRAD FOR TROCAIRE AT LORETO COLLEGE

Traditional music sessions were held at Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, on Friday 1st October 2010 to raise money for Trocaire.

Organised in tandem with Comhaltas Ireland events, the sessions saw students from throughout the College’s age-range performing in Break and Lunchtime sessions, with some help from a few very talented members of the teaching staff.

Under the leadership of Mrs Maeve Close and Mr Gerry McGouran – both teachers and musicians – a range of instrumentalists playing fiddle, whistle, uilleann pipes, traditional flute and Irish harp entertained enthusiastic audiences, in the College Foyer at breaktime and in the Sixth Form Study at lunchtime.

Bean Ui Mhaolain, Social Justice Co-ordinator at Loreto College, was delighted to report that the Sessions had raised £117 for Trocaire.

All the staff and students who took part in the event were congratulated on their generosity and musicianship by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College.
