Kildare's Carmelite Church Concert attracts huge crowds

Performers at the concert

There was a great turnout at this year’s annual Carmelite Church fundraiser in Kildare town, which was held on Sunday, October 29 at 7.30pm.

Tenor Dominic McGorian and soprano Louise Irvine sang in concert at the Carmelite Church for this year’s fundraiser.

They were joined by two local artists, Kildare singer and songwriter TJ Sweeney and bagpiper Martin Hickey.

The dynamic duo and friends appreared for one night only to raise funds for the Carmelite Friary in Kildare Town.

The Prior, Fr Manuel Karippote thanked the artists for their impressive and amazing performances and also for their choice of musical programme for the evening, the audience for their very generous support and for coming in such large numbers, and for the organizers and helpers whose attention to detail created a night of immense enjoyment both in the Church and the hall where refreshments were served.

The proceeds from the concert will go towards the upkeep of the Friary.
