Play it Again – Instrument Reuse in Fingal

The Fingal instrument project began in the summer of 2019, when Sinead Fox, the Environmental Education Officer with Fingal County Council noticed a lack of instruments in the music room of a local charity.

Staff in the 2 Fingal County Council recycling centres agreed to keep all instruments that were brought for disposal to one side. Sinead and other musicians then repaired these instruments for donation to local charity groups.

Fingal County Council says people who have unwanted musical instruments and accessories can bring them to its recycling centres at Swords and Coolmine, where they will be collected for refurbishment.

The initiative received positive coverage on RTE News.
