With this year’s traditional Greystones choir love-in on Church Road on hold, two local singers came up with a novel way of caroling for the Lakers.
Namely, a virtual choir, with singers invited to record their own contribution to a communal rendition of the Frankie Goes To Hollywood fave, O Come All Ye Faithful.
The clever idea of soprano Aoife O’Connelland her hubby, James – the brains behind Greystones Children’s Choir – the couple were naturally hoping singers and warblers around the town and beyond would come together for this very special Christmas singalong.
Especially given that it was all in aid of the mighty Lakers.
And, of course, they weren’t disappointed, with good, rockin’ Samaritans Carol Hunter, Austin Prior, Susan McCormick, Gemma Cahill, Anika Smith, Sarah Carey, Mary Cahill, Gemma Cahill, Alison Crammond, Anabel Hands, Louise, Kate and Jay Beahan, Tom and Caroline Jones, Catherine Cronin, Julie Cahill, Mary Begg, Sheila Campion, Maria Fox O’Rourke, Aisling Sullivan, baby Adriano Liam Stecconi-Sullivan and Roísín Sullivan, Liam, Rachel & Amy Kennedy, Giovanna Feeley, Virginia Doyle, Lisa Nexer, Trish Hannon, Kerrie Mitchell, Mark, Nicky & Kate McCormick, Stephanie & Molly, Eoin Kerrane, Ian Bingham, Janice Bingham, Lucy O’Connell, Jackie O’Connell, Biddy McCormick, Catherine Daly, Emma O’Connell, Molly Sims, Stephanie Behan, David & Stephen Flynn and Mary Cahill all getting involved.
