Trocaire and Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann are asking traditional Irish musicians from Tipperary to organise a ‘seisiun’ in support of Trad for Trocaire week, from Friday 26th Sept. to Friday 3rd Oct.
During Trad for Trocaire week, trad musicians, music fans and venues hold traditional Irish music sessions in aid of Trocaire’s work across the developing world. The campaign celebrates two great aspects of Irish culture – our deep musical heritage and our history of goodwill towards people living in extreme hardship in poor countries.
In the last five years over 1,300 Irish trad music sessions in aid of Trocaire have been held as part of Trad for Trocaire. To get involved and order a Trad for Trocaire fundraising pack or to support a Tipperary Trad for Trocaire gig, visit trocaire.org/trad or call Lisa Byrne in Trocaire on 01 5053228.
