Trad for Trocaire week

Trócaire and Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann are asking traditional Irish musicians from Co. Antrim to tune up their instruments and organise a session in support of Trad for Trócaire week, which takes from Friday 26th September to Friday 3rd October 2014.

During Trad for Trócaire week, trad musicians, music fans and venues hold traditional Irish music sessions in aid of Trócaire’s work across the developing world.

Eithne McNulty, Trócaire’s director in Northern Ireland, said: “Over the last five years, trad musicians across Co. Antrim have embraced Trad for Trócaire, by coming together and sharing their talent and music to reach out to people living in great need.
