Holy Trinity Church Crosshaven is celebrating its 150th Anniversary this year, 1868- 2018. This concert was one of a number of events happening as part of the celebration this year.
The proceeds from this Concert go to the Crosshaven Community Consolidation project ‘Save Our Spire’ (SOS Project) for the old Templebreedy Church on the hill.
St Matthew’s on the Hill was the place of worship for the ninety years preceding Holy Trinity church and it is timely in this year of celebration to connect the old history of Templebreedy Church with the newer history of Holy Trinity Church.
Over the past 150 years, Holy Trinity Church has become a well-known and loved place within the village and it is fitting that this event was a gathering of the wider community in music, song and celebration.
At the concert the highly acclaimed traditional Irish vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird, was accompanied by renowned musician Steve Cooney, and the Crosshaven Community Choir and other musicians. Dr. Eva McMullan, directed this concert and it was a fabulous event, enjoyed by all.
