An enjoyable evening of music and song is guaranteed at St. Mary’s Church, Irishtown on Friday April 20th at 8 pm as bass-baritone, Derek Ryan joins the Clonmel Concert Band in a fundraising concert for Autism services at two local schools. One of the finest singers ever to emerge from Tipperary, Derek returns from an extensive tour of the United States to team up with the 40 strong band, conducted by Danny Carroll. Also taking part will be choirs from Ardfinnan National School, fresh from their recent appearance at The Peace Proms in Kilkenny and singers from St. Mary’s CBS ahead of their forthcoming production of The Lion King. Ever popular singer, Andrea Ruth-Houlihan will also appear to perform a couple of favourite songs. Expect classic songs, movie themes and show favourites as well as a special performance of ‘Panis Angelicus’ from Derek, choirs and band.

Tickets, 15 Euro, are available from Marian’s, O’Connell Street, Ardfinnan National School and St. Mary’s CBS as well as at the door on Friday, 20th of April. All funds raised will be for the benefit of the ASD Units at Ardfinnan NS and the Cherryblossom ASD Preschool at St. Mary’s CBS, Irishtown. Cherryblossom Preschool is joining with the Clonmel Day Centre for the Elderly in the development of a garden to be enjoyed by both old and young. The garden will be situated on the grounds shared by the preschool and the Day Centre in Irishtown. The proceeds will allow the start of this wonderful project.
