Children’s Voices Sing Out for D&G 800 Celebrations

Children in national schools all over Dublin & Glendalough have been singing their hearts out in preparation for the Diocesan National Schools Choir Competition which takes place this spring. The competition is being organised as part of the Dublin & Glendalough 800 celebrations and aims to nurture the talent which exists within our schools.

Entries have been flooding in and as the closing date is in the next couple of days a final call is being made for schools to submit their applications for this wonderful opportunity to showcase their pupils’ musical flair. Entry packs have been sent out to all diocesan schools but if for some reason your school has not received the details or your entry has been delayed please contact the Revd Eugene Griffin as soon as possible on 086–3826646.

Throughout the Dublin & Glendalough 800 commemorations, events have been organised to honour our diocesan past, celebrate what is happening here today and look to the future with hope. The choir competition will foster a sense of unity among the schools of the dioceses and will give children to sing to a wider audience.

The competition will culminate in an event in Christ Church Cathedral on April 2.
