Local choral group, the Cúchulainn Singers are all set for their fourth musical production in the Spirit Store this Friday and Saturday night.

Known for their fun musical shows and having successfully sold out every show in the last four years, bringing audiences the nostalgic music of the wartime forties, the rock and roll fifties, the psychedelic sixties and the disco dancing seventies, this year's show is inevitably a tribute to the golden age of the synthesiser and energetic anthems.

The show is produced by local music teacher Liz McConnon and one of the founding members of the group, Lorraine Quigley.

Following on their previous successes, Lorraine said that this was a difficult one to put together given the amazing choice of songs available to them.

'It's hard to define a decade of music in two hours.' Lorraine said, 'but we have chosen some fantastic anthems, love songs and dance music and together with the fantastic venue of the Spirit Store, it promises to be a fun night of great music and entertainment'.

Go along for a great night of songs by Lionel Richie, Wham, Bananarama, Cindi Lauper, Pet Shop Boys, Paul Young, Soft Cell, Bonnie Tyler, Dexy"s Midnight Runners and many more.

Local musicians and brothers David and Darragh Stanley together with Drogheda musicians Kevin Donnolly on keyboard and Sean McCloskey on guitar will accompany the singers on the night.
