The madness that is Christmas is well under way, and The Barony Choir have been playing their part in the madness too.

On December 10th we descended on Water Rock House for our Christmas ‘do’ and thanks to Tom Cleere and his staff for a fantastic meal and great hospitality.

After the meal we had a good ol’ sing song, and all the choirt members and a number of guests were in fine voice and rattled off loads of songs through the evening.

It transpired that Tom Cleere was celebrating a ‘significant’ birthday on the same day so Tom and members of his family joined us for some songs and recitations towards the end of the evening.  We think we can safely say that all present enjoyed a great night.

And if that wasn’t enough, we gave our second public performance on stage in the Grand Parade in Cork City Sunday evening December 18th to support the Irish Cancer Society in their fund raising efforts.  We performed about 10 songs, a mixture of Christmas Carols and contemporary songs and going by the positive reaction from the audience and some biased family members we were brilliant!! 🙂    Many thanks to Carolyn our Conductor for taking time out from her hectic schedule for the performance and to Michael our accompanist also.

Finally, we want to give a special mention to Sue, and wish her a speedy recovery.

We’re on a break now for the Christmas season, and rehearsals will resume on January 3rd.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and hope you can make it to hear us in the new year.
