Foróige’s Christmas single was recorded on Sunday 10th November at Finnstown House in Lucan. Volunteers, staff and young people arrived in their droves to participate. The song is entitled “Calling you Home for Christmas” and has an emigration theme. The song will be in aid of Foróige youth services in Tallaght and Blanchardstown. It was composed by Gavin Byrne who is a Youth Worker at Foróige’s Computer Clubhouse in Blanchardstown. The cover art was created by Richard O’Connor who is a former member of the clubhouse.
Youth work works. We want to continue to provide the levels of youth service that are needed in Tallaght and Blanchardstown in the face of harsh funding cuts. The single will be launched in early December. We can’t wait to share it with all of you and hope that you will support the song!
