Unison 4 Ukraine - A magical musical evening!

Crokes and Cuala musical collaboration goes down a treat!

The Kilmacud Crokes GAA choir has gone from strength to strength since its foundation in 2016, raising funds every year for charity. On Thursday 19th May, Monkstown Parish Church was filled to the rafters for a sold-out concert in aid of the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.  The event raised in excess of €10,000 for this worthy cause.

Hosted by broadcaster Olivia O'Leary, the Unison4Ukraine concert featured Kilmacud Crokes GAA Choir, Cuala GAA choir, trad group Aiteal, soprano Méabh Nic Mhaoláin and Baritone Shane Barriscale. Special guests the Ukrainian Church Choir received a standing ovation from the audience and were overwhelmed by the warm response and show of support for their country. 

New members are always welcome in the choir whose next performance will be at the blessing of the RNLI's new lifeboat in Dún Laoghaire on June 12th.
