Mercy College Coolock 'Sing Out' for Haiti

The students of Mercy Coolock 'sang out' for Haiti on Friday 29th January, raising over €2,700 in the process. A team of 5th year students organised the event, which saw girls from every year group, as well as staff, put their vocal talents on show. Songs performed included 'Yellow', 'Don't Stop Believing', 'Ben' and 'Barbie Girl'.

All funds raised will go directly to an orphanage run by 'Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs'. The Mercy link with the charity is strong because one of the volunteers Adele Lawlor is a past pupil of Mercy Coolock, who has volunteered in Haiti for the past 20 years.

Adele was home on sabbatical to study at DCU when the earthquake struck but she headed back to Haiti last week to give whatever help she can.

All at Mercy Coolock wish her well and will continue to keep her and those she serves in our thoughts and prayers.

If other CEIST schools are fundraising for the earthquake victims, we would ask them to consider donating to 'Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs', details available from the Mercy College Coolock school office.

National Cup Basketball Win

Mercy Coolock enjoyed its greatest success yet on the basketball court on Sunday, January 31st, when DCU Mercy defeated Glanmire to win the National Cup, the most glittering prize in women's basketball, for the first time ever.
