St Brendan’s College, Killarney has seen some special nights in its 150 year history but nothing would compare to Liam O’Connor’s Chapel Concert.

Once Liam’s creative mind came up with the idea he worked closely with the Colleges musical and cultural department, under the directorship of Miss Mish O’Donoghue, and Noreen O’Sullivan from Liam’s production company, to produce a stunning night of music, song and story where Liam was joined by the colleges Choir and traditional musical group. The students showed their vast array of musical and vocal talents, developed through their hard work, to the delight of the many family members, College Principal Sean Coffey and staff that were in the audience.

The night became the hottest ticket in town and sold out in record time, with a waiting list of disappointed fans hoping for a reprise of the night at some future date.

Once special guest Michael O’Muircheartaigh opened the show there was a sense that this was going to be something special.

Gigs sometimes take on a nature of their own and develop an energy that can’t be contrived and this was one of those nights.

Liam produced a set-list that combined his, and his bands, musical creativeness that blended effortlessly with the pieces picked for the Choir and traditional musicians.

The angelic tones of vocalists Lisa Aherne and tenor Dominic McGorian matched the surroundings of the Chapel perfectly, the roof of which was almost raised off the building when all involved joined together for the show ending crescendo of ‘Irelands Call’.

There was a buzz and energy in the audience and amongst the students who performed, and those who were lucky enough to be present witnessed a night in the Chapel that will live long in the memory.
