The students of Millstreet Community School are proud to be hosting a Trad for Trócaire event in the school library on Friday 9th November beginning at 7.30pm.  It will be a celebration of traditional Irish song, dance, music and the spoken word.  Students from all year groups will have the opportunity to participate and everyone in the community is welcome to attend.  Light refreshments will be served.  Admission is free although there will be a collection in aid of Trócaire’s work amongst some of the poorest communities in development countries.  We look forward to welcoming you on Friday.
