Roscrea Community Choir, under the baton of Lucy McCarthy, are putting the finishing touches to their songs for Sunday November 13th.
Roscrea Community Choir will be joined by an outstanding line-up of talent in their "Show A Little Kindness" Concert in St. Cronan's Church on Abbey St.. RTÉ sports commentator, Ger Canning, will act as MC for the night and tickets are now on sale in Pattersons on Main St.
They will also be available this Fri 4th and Sat 5th in Roscrea Credit Union, and in Bernies and the credit union the following weekend. All proceeds from the event will be divided between Midland Simon Community for their work with the homeless in our area, and Plan International who work with refugees, especially girls.
On the night of the concert, a high-ranking officer from The Irish Navy, recently returned from his rescue missions in the Mediterranean, will tell us about his experience. Entertainment will be led by Orla Fallon from the internationally successful group Celtic Woman and Simon Casey of You're a Star. Simon will perform with singer Paul Skelton. Colm Brussels, a musician, composer and arranger, will present some new compositions in a memorable arrangement of harps, and will also accompany singer Yvonne O'Toole. We have local group Passing Through, award-winning dancers accompanied by David Kinsella, the Sacred Heart Children's Choir, storyteller Noel Joyce and singer Breffni Fitzpatrick. It will be a wonderful night of entertainment. Please get your tickets as early as you can for this fabulous night out.
