27/09/2013 TRAD FOR TROCAIRE AT LORETO COLLEGE COLERAINE

Traditional music sessions were held at Loreto College Coleraine on Friday 27th September 2013 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 – and assisted by College Vice Principal Mr Stephen Gallagher, a range of instrumentalists playing fiddle, harp, whistle, traditional flute and accordion entertained enthusiastic audiences, in the College canteen at breaktime and lunchtime. The musicians were joined by some very accomplished Irish dancers, who delighted the audience in the packed canteen.

Mrs Lorraine McCool, Social Justice Co-ordinator at Loreto College, was delighted to report that the Sessions had raised £203.65 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.
