Trad for Trocáire in Leitrim

Trad for Trocáire this week

Tune up your fiddles and bodhráns – it’s Trad for Trócaire week!

Leitrim musicians and music fans are asked to support Trócaire and Comhaltas’ annual fundraising campaign.

Trócaire and Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann are asking trad musicians to tune up their instruments for Trad for Trócaire week, which takes place this week until Sunday, October 2.

Local trad seisiúns will take place around the country to support Trócaire’s work during this national week of ‘ceoil agus craic’ and Leitrim people are encouraged to support their local session.

Since 2010 over 2,000 Trad for Trócaire events have taken place across Ireland, the UK and even the USA. Money raised supports people living in extreme poverty or facing human rights abuses.

Katie Bolger, Trócaire’s Fundraising Officer said, “Trad for Trócaire is a real celebration of Irish music culture and of our history of generosity towards the poorest people in times of need. We have been amazed by the warm welcome we have received from Ireland’s trad musicians for the last six years and we are looking forward to another great Trad for Trócaire week this year.

“We are asking any Leitrim musicians, venues and music lovers to join us by supporting Trad for Trócaire week and setting up a local trad music session. No matter how big or small, your event has the power to change lives.”
