The Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) visited Presentation Secondary School, Clonmel to conduct a songwriting workshop with Transition Year students as part of the build-up to RTÉ's Big Music Week.

The students decided to write the song about one of their heroes, Alice Strain, a teacher of theirs who died tragically in a car accident earlier this year just months before her wedding. Their live performance on board the RTÉ Big Music Week train the following week took everyone's breath away, including close members of Alice's family who were in attendance on the day alongside her fiancé. The story and video of their performance received over 25,000 hits on TheJournal.ie and led to the students performing their song live in Vicar Street to a standing ovation as part of the RTÉ Big Music Week gig finale.




Alice had a great affection for the St.Vincent De Paul organization and the school has chosen this charity to benefit from proceeds of sales.




Thanks to: IMRO, Silverwood Studios, Presentation Secondary School, Clonmel and all those aboard the RTE Big Music Week Train.
