St Patrick's College Chapel

On Tuesday 7th November, in the College Chapel of St Patrick's College, Maynooth, the famous West Cork choir Cór Chúil Aodha will make a keenly anticipated return visit to Maynooth's splendid College Chapel.  The choir was founded by legendary Irish composer Séan Ó Riada in 1963 and is now directed by his son Peadar.  The choir occupies a legendary place in Irish music and embodies the spirit of an area that is historically rich in both poetry and music.  This concert will also act as a memorial concert for Prof. Pádraig Ó Fiannachta, Irish language scholar and former professor of modern Irish at Maynooth College.
