Sinsir Club

‘For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under Heaven’

With a season of upward change in the air since the much-awaited news of the government ‘opening up’, Castlemagner Sinsir Club feels a sense of renewal and relief. We are aware that such a change brings mixed emotions for all of us.

There may be mixed feelings such as apprehension, relief, confusion, positivity, excitement, fear. However, we still see a great year ahead. The Sinsir club chooses to take the opportunity to celebrate the chance to be together again as a community; to bring back the values ​​of friendliness and conviviality. On the horizon we see a bright new dawn and as we step back into the light we live in hope of vacations together, day trips, shopping, music, learning opportunities and a renewal of our weekly gatherings with a sense of unity and celebration.

For starters, we’re hoping to arrange a bus tour to Cork Opera House to see Ireland’s greatest voices, the Three Tenors, who return for their annual Mother’s Day special, a must-see concert of classic hits made famous by artists like Sinatra, The Dubliners and Pavarotti. This is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, February 19, 2022. Listen to all the special songs you love, performed with passion! Caledonia, Grace, The Green Fields of France, The Parting Glass, My Way, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Oh Sole Mio.

The group includes Ireland’s favorite trio, Kenneth from Cork, Paul and Kevin, providing the ‘feel-good factor’ promising a fabulous evening to remember. Featuring an exciting Celtic-style program with a twist, this thrilling concert is a classic mix filled with the finest contemporary and uplifting songs with something for everyone! Their remarkable friendliness and connection with their audience make this a uniquely personal concert. There are currently standing ovations at every concert! This is the one not to be missed.

The organization of this evening is subject to the level of interest within the community. As soon as we have enough names, the reservation will be made. To register your interest, contact Kathleen as soon as possible on 086 8521808 to allow time to block-book tickets and the bus. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
