As mentioned in a previous post, last night we put on Mozart's great Requiem in the Chapel. Four teachers in the English Department were part of a 60-strong choir. The Chapel was full, and afterwards there was a reception in the BSR, decorated with entries for tonight's Arts and Crafts Prize exhibition.

Professor Kevin Malone spoke powerfully about the cause we were supporting, 'Turning the Tide', and about the stilling of the voices of those young men and women who have taken their own lives in wealthy, 'booming' Ireland. He also said how important it was that our own voices are celebrated during what he called 'the fragility of the only life we have'.

€2000 was raised for Turning the Tide.
