Where would one experience such a royal welcome, an uplifting celebration of Mass which included the wonderful singing of Annmarie O’Riordan and musical Friends, three more traditional musicians during the drinks reception, a glorious banquet in an exquisite setting where Guests were entertained by two Magicians during their meal, surprise musical Guests Sharon Shannon and Friends (including Macroom’s Jim Murray, Jnr.) introduced on stage, a performance by five times world champion Dancer David Geaney from Dingle and finally Nathan Carter & his Superb Band?
