Funding project in conjunction with Tesco
from "Tesco" website
Murrisk National School, a rural two teacher school just six miles from Westport town. The school and its active Parents' Association generally raise funds with an annual Christmas concert, a yearly community fun run, flag days, cake sales and bric-a-brac stalls. The money raised is used to pay for activities such as dancing & music lessons, tours & field trips, transport to events like matches & musicals, and for essentials such as library books and educational toys.
Mrs. Anne O’Reilly, principal of the school said: “We used our Tesco Community Fund donation to record our own traditional music CD in a professional recording studio in Westport. We played tunes such as 'The Star of the County Down' and 'Tears of Clew Bay' on our tin whistles and accordions, and a wonderful day was had by all. We would not have had the opportunity to take part in this fantastic and educational activity without the Tesco Community Fund. Thank you!
