On Thursday night last 14th April, our 70 strong choir, our 30 musicians, our readers, our dancers and our artists led by accordion virtuoso Liam O’Connor and his band – and with guest star Brian Kennedy – all combined to deliver a night of fabulous entertainment.

In addition Dr. Michael Murphy, President of UCC – gave a wonderful keynote address on the importance of education and culture in the emerging nation.

Now in its third year – the brainchild of Music department head Mish O’Donoghue – has really grown up.

Under Mish and Liam’s guidance our students gave layers of extraordinary performances.

The College Chapel reverberated with the joy of all that unfolded during this wonderful event.

Well done all.
