Trad for Trocaire is supported by Irish musicians, singers and dancers who fundraise to help people in the World's poorest regions to live with independence and dignity. Since the year 2010 events have taken place all across Ireland, the United Kingdom and USA, and in Youghal the very talented Comhaltas Group have continued to support the fundraising efforts.
They were delighted when Joanne Madden and Nollaig Casey, Cherish the Ladies, who were in Youghal as part of the Food & Mackerel Festival, agreed to launch the 2017 fundraiser and, on Friday night last they met under Youghal's Icon Clock Tower for an East Cork Journal picture, before heading to The Mall Arts Centre where a superb performance was once more presented to a packed house.
Miceal de Buitleir told The East Cork Journal that monies raised by Trad for Trocaire is now supporting communities in many countries across the developing world who are struggling daily with extreme poverty and injustice.
Further ongoing information on the Youghal Trad for Trocaire Fundraiser 2018 will be published in The East Cork Journal.
