Glin Christmas Concert hosted by Glin Development.
It was a beautiful crisp Christmassy December night. Glin church looked resplendent with its magical lanterns and holly and ivy decorations. Everyone was looking forward to the Friday night concert, where the nights entertainment was being provided by the world famous BAGATELLE and also by our very own John Sheahan of the Dubliners fame and his very good friend and musician Danny O Mahony of Radio Kerry fame. The night did not disappoint and we were entertained for over three hours with the most fabulous music. John Sheahan and Danny are both gifted musicians and they both played some beautiful pieces of Irish music together and John recited some poignant poetry which he composed himself. They held the crowd enthralled for over an hour, and after a short interval the much anticipated BAGATELLE took over the stage. The tempo soared as they played hit after hit of their famous songs and the roof of the church was in doubt as they belted out hits including, Second Violin, Summer in Dublin, Trump card, Leeson Street Lady and many more. Everyone was able to sing along as memories of the 80’s flooded back and brought us all back to our youth! The concert finished on a high well after 11pm and both John Sheahan and members of Bagatelle mingled with the concert goers for photos and a chat. The concert was a resounding success and enjoyed by all who attended. Glin Development would like to take this opportunity to thank Fr. Tom Crawford for allowing the use of the church and also to all the people who purchased tickets and attended the concert. Your support as always is greatly appreciated.
