We are a mixed voice choir with choir2approximately 35 members from all parts of the city and County. Our focus is on making each performance: fun, bright, uplifting and bringing something different to our audience. Our range of repertoire includes a wide range of traditional gospel to contemporary classics and adding our own twist and style to some old classics as well as performing some up to date favourites.


There is a great sense of friendship and community spirit within our choir and it is this friendship and respect that helps us to bond together as a group with award winning results. We reached the semi-finals of RTE’s An Cor in 2010, participated at the Festival of Church Music for the last number of years and each year has seen a positive progression – 2009 received the Draiocht award - 2010 joint 2nd place in the Sacred Music - 2011 proud winner of the Best Limerick Choir, 2013 we won first place in the newly introduced Gospel Choir Category, and in 2014 we came second place in the Gospel Choir Category.
