Roscrea Community Choir enjoyed a busy fruitful year. We resumed practices in September 2014 under the baton of our choir director Lucy McCarthy and accompanist/organist Jim Maley Choir members enthusiastically participated in the Church of Ireland 1st World War Memorial Service and Harvest Festival last Autumn. Roscrea Community Choir also performed in Reverend Shannon de Loreal's 1st Harvest Festival with the Methodist Community. We were so proud to contribute and take part in the Parish celebration and send off for our retiring Parish Priest Fr. Tom Corbett.
Other highlights of an action packed liturgical and cultural year included a fund raising concert for Sr.Mona Maher's missionary work in Rackett Hall, Carol Services in both St.Cronan's Church of Ireland and The Methodist Church, including solo performances by Triona Walsh, and participation in The Taste of Roscrea.
Taking part in Limerick Choral Festival 2015 was a rewarding and uplifting experience for our members.We were thrilled to achieve an outstanding resulting in the Church Choir Part singing section. St. Patrick's Day Mass with Comhaltas members in St Cronan's Catholic Church was another important engagement for the choir. Some members of Roscrea Community Choir assisted Birr Choir members performing the Cantata ' Fingerprint of God' in April in Birr and in the Cistercian College Roscrea. We wish all our members, friends and supporters a relaxing summer season and look forward to resuming practices next September.
