“On behalf of Coloma Primary School, Uganda, my sister, Sr Eileen and myself, Sr Mona Maher, I sincerely extend our gratitude to all who made the Concert at Racket Hall so successful. I heard wonderful reports of the standard of traditional music played in Roscrea.

“My thanks firstly goes to the Comhaltas committee for your great work in organising the concert, to all the artists young and old and to the dedicated music and dancing teachers who train the musicians and dancers to such a high standard. I also thank all of you who attended and enjoyed the evening of high class entertainment. Thank you for your generous contributions. You are supporting two children at Coloma primary school – Elizabeth and Theresa and on their behalf I thank you. I have in plan to use the remainder of the money to install rain water harvesting tanks. With the present world climate change we are experiencing a water shortage and need to conserve every drop of rain water for the children for bathing, washing clothes and cooking. On behalf of the school and the children, I thank you and wish each of you Gods blessings.”
