When I’m not at work…I’m singing!

As some of you may know (I tend to mention it from time to time!), one of my favourite things to do in my spare time is sing with my choir.

It’s a well-known fact that group singing is one of the most effective forms of managing your mental health. It can be daunting and challenging but the rewards are worth every bit of the effort.

About 5 years ago I joined the St. Mary’s College Singers and in that time I have been fortunate enough to perform with an amazing group of people in a wide variety of locations for different occasions.

We’ve had the opportunity to showcase our talents in concerts both locally and internationally, with performances in Italy, UK, Portugal, and France.

We regularly participate in official college ceremonies, choral competitions (we’ve been lucky enough to have won a few!), Christmas Carol events and Music Festivals. We’ve also had the privilege of singing at wedding and funeral ceremonies within our extended choir family. We’ve sung in theatres, restaurants, pubs (a lot!), TV studios, shopping centres, airports, open-air events, on stages and under stages.

Christmas is our busiest time of the year, the highlight of which is our annual Peace On Earth concert in Christchurch Cathedral where we raise funds for Aidlink.  We’re also performing in Dun Laoghaire and Dundrum Town Centre so if you hear us come over and drop a few quid in the buckets.

Last year we raised over €30,000 for our chosen charities.

Here is a brief sample from this year’s performance in Christchurch.






We have been working with Coleman Financial Planning since early 2016. We both have a number of pensions from previous employments, and weren’t sure that we were maximising our return – or unnecessarily duplicating on fees. Daragh undertook a full review and came back with recommendations. We have made some changes e.g. consolidating funds where it made sense. We feel we are in safe hands with an expert who doesn’t try to blind you with science or numbers. We know that someone will now be looking at annual statements who understands them, and will work with us to secure our financial future
