On the 19th of December ‘Stars, Choirs & Carols’ will see over 500 choirs gather together @ Croke Park, in aid of Cliona’s Foundation and The Sanctuary.
“This is a perfect ending to the Year of The Gathering. We are a nation of storytellers and songwriters. No other medium brings hope and raises the spirits like the power of song. I hope people will partake in this worthy event.”
Sr Stanislaus Kennedy, founder of the Sanctuary, said about the event;
“Christmas is a time of peace and goodwill and we are delighted that the Sanctuary is associated with this great festival”
Especially one's like this from Mark Bourke who says...
'Marty on Lyric is my inoculation from anything the day can throw at me, he’s up there with Byrne, Wogan & Andrews as Ireland’s greatest broadcaster.'...... .....Thank you Mark......Tenner in the post!!
His morning show on Lyric is quite simply the best radio in Ireland. He has such a perfect delivery. An encyclopaedia of clever dadjokes and puns but with a light touch, never hanging on for the applause. Reminds me of a jolly, self-deprecating Colonel Mustard. Jonathan McCrea
...Thanks very much for all the good cheer every morning Marty and never going on about all the bad news out there!! You are a tonic to be sure!! ........Patricia in Offaly
....Good morning Marty, I am a nurse working on night duty and listen to lyric through the night. Always glad to hear your dulcet tones at 7am as I know I will be off duty soon. .... Keep up the good work and music and the 'corny' jokes....Moira in Dublin 6
