    Ceiliúradh

    A special concert or Ceiliúradh for 5,500 people was held at London’s sumptuous Royal Albert Hall last night. It will linger in the memory as one of the highlights of President Higgins’s visit to the UK. At the event the president hailed the contribution to British life made by emigrants and their families and insisted that they remained what he called ‘cherished members’ of the Irish family. The Ceiliuradh featured some of Ireland’s leading artists and musicians. One of last night’s performers was musician Donal Lunny, and the special concert was co-ordinated by Philip King of South Wind Blows.

    President Higgins’ Visit to the UK

    It’s day three of President Michael D Higgins visit to the UK . Last night he was in London’s Guildhall for a gala dinner hosted by the Lord Mayor of London where he told the 700 guests that Ireland and Britain “both recognise and celebrate” the endless possibilities that could lie ahead. Sean was joined by someone who has been watching the President’s visit more closely that most, Colin Parry, whose 12 year old son Tim  was killed in the Warrington bomb more than 20 years ago.
