On Sunday, 13th May 2011, Carrigaline & District Lions Club (in conjunction with the Carrigaline Singers) proudly present an evening of top class Light Entertainment, with proceeds going towards our Senior Citizens Holiday fund.

In addition to the renowned Carrigaline Singers, under the musical direction of Brian McNamara, and accompanied by Ruth Stanley, we are honoured and excited to announce that our very Special Guest will be International Soprano, Mary Hegarty.

Poet and raconteur Pat Boran and Master of Ceremonies, James O’Sullivan complete the bill for what promises to be a truly memorable evening, tickets for which are now on sale, priced at a “recession busting” €10.

Mary Hegarty who of course needs no introduction, will join the Carrigaline Singers in a number of pieces, and also perform her own solo selection. Her voice is known and revered worldwide, and this is a rare opportunity to enjoy her in live performance.

As well as selections from their popular classical repertoire, the Carrigaline Singers will also perform their own unique interpretations of international best selling hits by John Denver, Billy Joel and many more.

Pat Boran, is probably best known for his presentation of The Poetry Programme on RTE Radio. He is also a regular contributor to Sunday Miscellany, where his humourous poetic portrayals of everyday life are always warmly received.

Funds raised from this event will be used by Carrigaline & District Lions to provide a well deserved holiday for local senior citizens at Trabolgan Holiday Centre in East Cork, organised annually by the Lions Clubs of Ireland and to support other Lions Club charities.

Tickets (€10) are available at the Carrigaline Court Hotel, Phelans Pharmacy Carrigaline, and Martin Walsh’s Pharmacy, Carrigaline Shopping Centre as well as from members of both Carrigaline & District Lions Club and the Carrigaline Singers. Early purchase is advised as the concert is expect to sell out. The concert which is scheduled to run for two hours with an interval will start at 8pm sharp and all concert goers are requested to be seated by 7:55pm.
