After seeing members of our Trad Group “Draíocht” perform on the “Late Late Toy Show” in December, Lakes Nursing Home in Killaloe put in a very special request for us to visit and perform for their residence. Eleven of the talented musicians from Desmond College Music Department from 1st year to 5th year, travelled to Killaloe on Wednesday 18th March and delivered an hour long performance. The staff and residence enjoyed music, songs and dance which lifted the spirits of all.
To celebrate St. Patricks Day and to spread the atmosphere through the sound of music, Desmond College’s Trad Group “Draíocht”, visited St. Ita’s Nursing Home on Monday 16th March 2015. The wards were filled with music, song and dance. A lovely morning was had by all.
They then travelled back to Desmond College to perform a lunchtime concert for the students and staff. This lunchtime concert included a debut performance from the 1st year Music Class which included their arrangement of Roddy McCorley/Sean South. Instruments included whistles, piano, cajon, bodhrán, accordion and guitars.
After providing Luchtime entertainment for the whole school, the Trad group participated in the First Year Céilí organised by The Irish Department. A fantastic day of music and dance was enjoyed by all. A big thanks to the Music and Irish Department.
