On Sunday 3rd February, the Church of Ireland Cobh and Glanmire Union of Parishes, County Cork, presented a cheque for €500 to Vivienne O’Mahony of the Cork Simon Community.
The money was raised at a recent concert which was held in St Mary and All Saints’, Church, Glanmire, as a part of the parish’s Winter Concert Series.
The concert featured the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir and the choir from St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, Riverstown (Glanmire). The parish has an excellent relationship with both groups and this was a wonderful opportunity to further strengthen these links.
The concert series also features young talent drawn from the local Cork ETB School of Music in Glanmire and Ballincollig. They are an opportunity for the young performers to make their concert debuts in a relaxed and appreciative atmosphere.
The final concert in this series will be held on Friday 1st March at 8pm in St Mary and All Saints’, Glanmire, where a retiring collection will be held in aid of the Glanmire branch of St Vincent de Paul.
