Darren’s Magnificent Show – A Truly Outstanding Success

What a truly unique occasion for Millstreet on Wednesday, 27th Dec. 2023, when the supremely talented Singer/Songwriter, Darren Kiely, performed so magnificently before a capacity audience of wonderfully enthusiastic Fans ranging from the young and the young-at-heart who had travelled from far and wide arriving at the very welcoming Millstreet Community Hall for the evening’s brilliant entertainment which began with the support act presenting a splendid performance by Edel O’Keeffe @edels.music on Instagram….daughter of Jeremiah and Anna (Kelleher, Laught), granddaughter of Peggy Kelleher, Laught.   Introduced by MC, Raymond Gilbourne, Darren received a totally uplifting and marvellously warm welcome on stage where he truly enchanted the very happy audience with such a superb variety of his own compositions as well as many other famous songs including “Fairytale of New York”.   The very talented Tommy Buckley accompanied on keyboard Darren on a number of songs.   The overall festive setting of the venue by Millstreet GAA was most impressive.   Towards the end of the Show, Darren presented a cheque for €1,000.00 to the Millstreet Branch of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and he, in turn, received a number of Millstreet related gifts from the local members of the GAA.   One of the most magical scenes of the Show was when the great audience held their lighted mobile phones on high to create a very special atmosphere for one of Darren’s much loved songs.  After the outstanding Show, Darren, a True Gentleman, stood for many photos and signed autographs for his many Loyal Followers.  Here we share a selection of images from the truly memorable  enjoyable occasion in Millstreet.   On this coming Tuesday, 2nd Jan. 2024, at 10pm we feature a special Interview with Darren on “Radio Treasures” on www.corkmusicstation.com .  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
