A very successful fund raising session was held at Sainsbury's shopping centre on Saturday 15th October. Over the course of 6 hours 40 musicians of all ages played for a very appreciative crowd of Saturday afternoon shoppers.
Many stayed to listen and donated generously to the collection buckets. The musicians included both teachers and pupils at the club and there were several large family groups. This is the second year that Sainsbury's has faciltated this fund raising session and this coupled with their bag-packing scheme which the club has availed of on 3 previous occasions has contributed greatly to the club's fund raising efforts.
Participants in the Session at Sainsbury's: Cormac Houlahan, Éabha Houlahan, Sharon Houlahan, Mallaidh Houlhan, Joan Kiernan, Conor Lavelle, Finnola Mallon, Áine Mallon, Martin McKenna, Peter McKenna, Sinéad McKenna, Daniel McKenna, Conor McVeigh, Annie McVeigh, Miceál Mullen, Ronan Stewart, Rory Stewart, Cillian Harney, Ciara O'Hanlon, Annie Smyth, Tiarnán Smyth, Méabh Smyth, Aoife Smyth, Rosie Smyth, Jack Toner, John Treanor, Sally Walmsley-Pledl, Leah Ann Walmsley-Pledl, Christopher Warner, Jarlath Warner, Martina Murphy, Mark Mohan, Brian Vallely, Eithne Vallely, John Billington, Ruairí Daly, Ciara Daly, Kevin Daly, Eoin Murphy, Cathal Murphy
