Congratulations to our Senior Choir, who carried home two trophies from the Limerick Choral Festival 2014 at the weekend.
They entered the Plainchant competition and won against a very good adult female choir from Cork.
This was the third time the Senior Choir has won this cup, which perhaps says something about the fine tradition of chant here at the monastery. Although based in a school, our Senior Choir is in some respects more like a parish choir in that it performs nearly every Sunday, quite unlike the average school choir. For this reason we entered them in the church Choirs competition. Here they competed against two adult church choirs, and were thrilled to bring off a second win in one evening.
Many thanks to Fr. Columba for his hard work in bringing the Senior Choir to such a high standard.
