Pat Carey and Ceolta Sí once again held a fantastic Christmas show at Brú na Sí last Saturday, raising over €1000 on the night for the Mercy Hospital Foundation. It’s one of the most anticipated nights of the year for all the members of Ceolta Sí and our way of supporting and saying a massive THANK-YOU to Pat Carey for the amazing volunteer work he carries out each year for our local community. He now even has a tune named after him – the Pat Carey Polka, composed by Sinead Mansfield, had its debut at the end of the show!
Ceolta Sí were joined on stage by our young dancers and also harpists and Uillean pipers that are recent additions to the Brú na Sí and Youghal Comhaltas family. Kieran Casey performed a beautiful rendition of Raglan Road.
Our sincere thanks to Youghal Lidl and Harrington’s bakers for the wonderful refreshments and also everyone who donated spot prizes for the raffle including Vera de la Cour, the Irish Prison Service & O’Driscoll Panel Beaters.
