Would you like to be part of
Donegal’s first ever Choir of Ages?
VERONICA McCarron of
‘Britan’s Got Talent’ fame has come on board to
conduct Donegal’s first ever ‘Choir of Ages’ and
those interested in taking part are being urged to
get in touch with the organisers.
“This is a really exciting initiative” says Mairead
Cranley, Donegal County Councils Social Inclusion
Officer. “It is all about forming our own Choir of
Ages but in our own Donegal style and we are calling
it Ceol le Chéile. This is an intergenerational
project where we are inviting children and older
people to come along and take part in the choir and
we are delighted to have Veronica McCarron on board.
Veronica is a retired Choral Director from the
Presentation Secondary School Kilkenny, also well
known for leading an outstanding Choir performance
on Britain’s Got Talent in 2016”.
“We are inviting older
people and children from the ages of 7 to 12 years
to get involved. The Choir will be based in
Letterkenny and transport arrangements will also be
made available from different parts of the county”.
This initiative is being rolled out as part of the
Donegal Age Friendly Strategy which is all about
enhancing the health and well being of those living
“Music is a wonderful and uplifting way of bringing
people together and music is known to have strong
therapeutic benefits in terms of mental and
emotional health. The choir is being called “Ceol le
Chéile” which means coming together to sing, we want
to form a choir to bring older people and younger
people together” says Mairead Cranley.
