As we are now in the midst of the ‘Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my friends and fans every good wish for Christmas.
Once again this year we played to thousands of fans at our Summer Show in Killarney and at gigs both in Ireland and abroad.
It was a special year in the Killarney Avenue as we celebrated our 10th anniversary and it was a great pleasure to perform with my family at the Show.
We met wonderful people from all over the world and send each and everyone of them Christmas Greetings.
As we look foward to a New Year it would be remiss not to take a minute to remember those who have left us for their ethernal reward in 2014.
I look forward to seeing many old and new fans in 2015 and of course are really excited about the Liam O’Connor 11th year at the Killarney Avenue.
Have a Wonderful Christmas and a New Year full of the joys of music.
This Sunday the people of Freemount and the surrounding areas will begin the Festive season by enjoying the internationally renowned Liam O’Connor as he performs in the Church.
