23/09/2011 TRAD FOR TROCAIRE AT LORETO COLLEGE

Traditional music sessions were held at Loreto College Coleraine on Friday 23rd September 2011 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 accordian entertained enthusiastic audiences, in the College Foyer at breaktime and in the Sixth Form Study at lunchtime.

Mrs Lorraine McCool, Social Justice Co-ordinator at Loreto College, was delighted to report that the Sessions had raised £266.50 for Trocaire.

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