Urlaur Concert

Just a quick update! Great night in St Joseph’s Church  this evening. Thanks to George Lee and Mayo Concert Orchestra for a fine evening’s entertainment. Thanks to soloist Ronan Egan and to Cathal Gavin, a young singer from Swinford who enthralled all gathered.

Will add a few more thoughts but, for now, a seasonal Carol to enjoy:



Amongst the many pieces performed by Mayo Concert Orchestra, under the “baton” of George Lee, was my favourite song.  I was singing along inside!! It’s the Isle of Inisfree by Dick Farrelly.  Ironically a man at the concert, a retired Garda was a colleague of Dick Farrelly who, legend has it, wrote this song while on a bus to Dublin.  That fare should be refunded!!  With a song like this, it’s fair to say, Farrelly had paid his fare in full!!




Rupert Davis ( was on hand and has added some fine photos of the night to the Community Website so check them out here
