During Lent we had three means of supporting Trocaire. There was the conscience basket beside the cake each Sunday during the coffee for those who wanted to offset their guilt for eating cake in Lent. There was the shamrock money for the shamrock on St Patrick’s Day and there was the table quiz in Patrick’s Pub on 1 April.
In total €540 was raised for Trocaire during Lent. This was the first Lenten collection in a few years (although we did send the proceeds of one of our summer collections to the East Africa disaster appeal last year). It is a great achievement to have raised so much in what is a small community.
Thanks to all who contributed, to all who supported the different events and to those who organized it.
