THE victims of 9/11 will be remembered at a concert in Dublin next month marking the 10th anniversary of the US terror attacks.

Ireland will join choirs around the world in the Global Sing For Peace in memory of almost 3,000 people who were killed when hijacked planes were crashed into the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon and rural Pennsylvania.

The Enchiriadis Treis choir will perform with the National Philharmonic Orchestra in the Convention Centre in Dublin's docklands on Sunday, September 11 at 4pm.

Gerry Fitzsimons, president of the Malahide-based choir, said: "The 10th anniversary is about remembering, but also about reflecting on today's conflicts and challenges."

Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster.ie from €20. Proceeds will go to fund the Harmony initiative at The Ark -- A Cultural Centre for Children based in Dublin's Temple Bar.

Eina McHugh, director of The Ark, said: "We want to remember those who died in 9/11, but we also want to offer hope for the future."
