The Teen SpiriT Thurles project 2013 was without doubt a tremendous success.
Following twelve rehearsals, an extremely talented group of Thurles teenagers staged a fabulous concert in LIT Tipperary, just before the summer holidays. Drawn from all of the local secondary schools, the teenagers not only excelled at singing, but also performed the instrumental music on guitars, drums and even a saxaphone, and also included a fabulous Irish dancing segment.
With two charities to benefit from the concert, it was an additional incentive to perform to the highest standard.
The two charities which benefited from the concert, namely Suir Haven, Thurles and Pieta House, received their cheques last week in the Parish Centre. Both were extremely grateful for the donation, and stressed how much good such an amount of money could do. They gave us a valuable insight into the benefits of such a donation, and assured us that it is badly needed, in these difficult financial times.
The Teen SpiriT group hope to reform this September, with a view to holding another charity concert this Christmas. If you are in TY, 5th or 6th year, you may wish to consider this project. It is a great way to make friends, and to have a safe space in which to hang out. For further information, contact Thurles Parish Centre at 22229. We look forward to seeing a huge turnout of teenagers at the next gathering. All are welcome.
