Students at Coláiste Abbain in Adamstown raised €1,435 for Trocaire and Raheen Daycare Centre by singing Christmas carols and by performing during Seachtain na Gaelige.

The Music Department of Coláiste Abbáin were thrilled to present a cheque for €935 to Trócaire and a cheque of €500 to Raheen Daycare Centre. The students had fundraised this year for Raheen Daycare Centre by carol singing at Christmas in Tesco, Wexford.

During the week of Seachtain na Gaelige the Music Department organised a Trad for Trócaire event in the school and also performed at Tesco, Wexford, raising money for Trócaire. A school spokesperson said: 'There is a wealth of musical talent in the school and the Music Department is growing from strength to strength under the leadership of their two music teachers Ms. Rosaline Power and Ms. Fiona Quirke. The students were delighted to put their talents to great use for such worthy causes.'
