The TY students of Ennis Community College/Gaelcholáiste an Chláir complete an annual fundraiser at this time of year. However, due to the pandemic, this proved to be more challenging. The group have come up with a novel idea to retain the tradition. For 24 hours, starting this Friday at 9am, transition year students will manage the local Vincent’s charity shop in Ennis to highlight that poverty is a 24/7 problem and to raise some much needed funds!

On Thursday’s Morning Focus, Gavin Grace spoke to teacher Martina MacNamara and student Joy Hallihan.
