Concerts stir up vision of O Riada
Published 01/08/2010 | 05:00
THE fourth in a series of concerts celebrating the music and cultural vision of Sean O Riada will be held at the Malton Hotel in Killarney tonight at 8pm.
Close on 1,000 people attended the Rochestown Park Hotel in Cork for the first concert earlier this year. Those present were enthralled by Ceoltoiri Chualann, O Riada's own band, joined as they were in O Riada's day by Cork singer Sean O Se.
The purpose of the concert is to focus on the music and ideas of O Riada and to keep his vision for Ireland alive.
Any profit will go to defray expenses owing from the erection of a memorial to Sean in the church grounds in Cuil Aodha in August 2008.
