The Trad for Trócaire event held at lunchtime yesterday certainly got the school tapping its feet. Students and teachers crowded into the Concert Hall to listen to girls from 1st to 6th year show off their outstanding musical talents. This display of Irish traditional music and dancing was well worth watching and the event itself raised €200 euro for Trócaire.
Eimear Bogue in 1st year was one of the many musicians displaying her talents by playing the tin whistle. She revealed she has been playing the tin whistle for four years and also plays the banjo! She decided to take part in Trad for Trócaire as she believed she could best help out by doing something she loved. Laura Young was another musician whose musical skills stood out. She is currently in 5th year and has been playing the flute for three years. She, too, also wanted to help raise money for such an amazing cause.
A few girls also put on an Irish dancing display, which really showcased their nimble skills. There was a mixture of girls from different years but they still performed together excellently.
It was great to see the fantastic turn-out for such a good cause. Everyone got into the swing of things and, needless to say, it was an ideal way to start the midterm.
