Staff members from the University of Limerick, who formed a traditional music group earlier this year, have recorded a CD to raise money for St Vincent's School in Lisnagry. Crúinniú is a CD recorded by the group of the same name, consisting of staff and faculty members from across all areas of the University. The group was formed as an Irish World Academy outreach initiative, which brought over 25 members of the campus community together to engage in weekly classes/sessions of Irish traditional music, facilitated by students and staff of the Irish World Academy.
Proceeds from the sale of the Crúinniú CD will go towards the establishment of a Snoezelen Room at St Vincent's School. A Snoezelen room is a favourable, non-threatening environment with a focus on leisure. Relaxation is promoted through gentle stimulation of the senses: sight, smell hearing, touch and movement. The Room provides accessible relaxation away from the cares of a disability. Snoezelen allows all people, regardless of their ability level, to enjoy relaxation and active play at a rate that they are able to control.
