LUBBOCK, TX -- On Thursday the members of the Coronado High School Band were on their way to Dublin, Ireland to march in the Saint Patrick's Day parade on March 17.

According to a press release students will be spending a week in the Emerald Isle and will visit several historical sites to learn more about the art and culture of the country.

Nancy Sharp, the Executive Director of Communications, said half of the band left on Wednesday and the rest of the group was on their way on Thursday by bus to the DFW airport. 

The students helped to raise money for the trip, and the CHS Band Facebook page asked the community for support and additional donations.
