The French pay the same for their health service as Brits, but this gets them far more doctors and nurses, much less bureaucracy and much better outcomes. Why don't we ditch the 'our NHS' dogma and learn from them?

LISTEN Irish school girl stuns music world with brilliant charity song Freedom Day

category galway | history and heritage | news report author Tuesday January 05, 2016 18:32author by Redshoedancer Report this post to the editors

Róisin Seoighe wins PREDA charity song contest with Freedom Day

A 16-year-old girl has stunned the music industry in Ireland with a brilliant song called Freedom Day, which highlights the suffering of thousands of children facing poverty and oppression across the world.

Róisin Seoighe won a contest organised by the charity PREDA with a song called Freedom Day. Irish singer Damien Dempsey admitted to being overcome with emotion “because this young song writer truly connected with the plight of the children”.

PREDA helps children in the Philippines and elsewhere, providing both care and financial support.

It organised a Freedom Day Song Competition for schoolchildren across Ireland. Dempsey, who first proposed the idea, said he was delighted with the passion for both music and justice displayed by so many young people.

Róisin comes from Connemara and Irish is her first language. Freedom Day is written in both English and Irish. She is a Transition year student at Scoil Chuimseach Chiaráin in Carraroe County Galway.

Columban Fr Shay Cullen, co-founder of PREDA, has said "The Freedom Song. It is a cry in the night for the many children who will have no Christmas now or for a long time. The Freedom Song by Roisin Seoighe, winner of PREDA’s 'Freedom Day Song Competition 2015', is a voice for abused and unwanted children."

Fr Shay Cullen SSC has been a missionary priest in the Philippines since 1969 and is the co-founder of the People’s Recovery, Empowerment and Development Assistance Foundation (PREDA). Learn more about the inspiring work of PREDA: https://www.preda.org.
