May 1st Sunrise Greeted with Song from Tower of St Anne’s, Shandon

St Anne’s – Shandon hosted its fifth ‘Shandon Sunrise’ at 6.02 am on 1st May . The dawn was greeted from the tower of St Anne’s in song by the O’Boyles (father and son) with Voci Nuove Chamber Choir. This was followed by a celebration of the Eucharist in the church.
This event has become a much loved annual event and marks the ancient celebration of the first day of summer.
