It was a great evening of traditional song and music performed by the students, from 1st year all the way up to Leaving Certs. Ms Janet Twomey (Trócaire, Cork) spoke about the type of projects that would benefit from money raised from the evening. The event raised a total of €410 for Trócaire’s work.
