Kildare people have been asked to organise music sessions to raise funds for charity. The Trad for Trocaire event is an annual week of fundraising and traditional Irish music run by the Maynooth-based charity in partnership with Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann. The event is taking place this year between Friday  September 25 and Friday October 2. Since it began in 2010, over 1,500 Trad for Trocaire sessions have taken place across Ireland, the UK and even as far away as the USA. A total of €560,000 has been raised by musicians and music lovers to fund Trocaire’s overseas programmes to help people affected by poverty and conflict.
