Eugene Ginty and friends in Collon church concert

Drogheda Notebook

Plans are well advanced for the eagerly awaited Eugene Ginty concert in Collon Church of Ireland on Sunday April 15th.

The concert was rescheduled from Sunday 4th March due to snow.

The programme will include excerpts from La Boheme, Messiah, Phantom of the Opera and lots more and there is great interest in the show which will also feature Sandra Oman and Ciara Taaffe.

Tickets including refreshments from Hazel O'Donoghue 086 968 0581 or Michael McMcMahon 087 235 5645 or at the door.

The show gets underway at 7pm.

The aim of the concert and other fundraisers is to raise funds to save the historic ceiling of the church. The interior has suffered water damage down the years and efforts are being made to save it.
