On Saturday June 29th I will be performing a concert in St. Columba’s Church, Bindon Street, Ennis to help raise funds for the vital maintenance work needed on St. Columba’s.
This beautiful church has opened its doors to host many events over the years, connecting the local community by keeping it active and alive with concerts, coffee afternoons, school music concerts, children’s programmes, the Christmas Tree Festival and many other interesting and fun projects.
I love performing in this very special venue. The love and care and goodwill of all involved radiates out of every stone and precious stained glassed window. But as with churches throughout Ireland, congregations are dwindling and the expenses needed to maintain such treasures are difficult to come by, to say the least.
Apart from the fact that it has become an important venue option for so many events, it would be a crime to witness such a building so steeped in history, culture and craftsmanship, disappear.
Hence, this concert in June 2019. I hope you will ‘Save this Date’ and will be able to find the time to come and share this evening with me. I am so looking forward to it myself.
Tickets are €30 and all proceeds go to the maintenance work needed on the church to continue making it a safe and viable venue into the future.
Seating is not allocated so please arrive early to avail of the best seats!
I am very grateful to Reverend Patrick Comerford for granting us permission to use his beautiful photographs of St. Columba’s Church in promoting this event. You will find an outline of the history of St. Columba’s on Reverend Comerford’s website.
