A year of celebration for the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Church of Assumption Abbeyfeale will have a special curtain raiser this Friday when one of Ireland’s favourite signers, the internationally acclaimed Finbar Wright, stars.
The classically trained Cork tenor will bring his uplifting repertoire to anticipated packed Church of the Assumption to start Golden Jubilee celebrations on a high. Having already performed in Abbeyfeale in 2008, it will be a popular return for a much loved artist.
The entertainment value of the nigh will be raised by famed Uilleann Piper Ronan Browne, who will join Wright in what’s going to be a very special performance. The concert is the first in a series of events that across 2018 to mark the Jubilee of the opening of the church in Abbeyfeale.
But it all starts on Friday with what will be a really special night for Abbeyfeale. Said Parish Priest Fr. Tony Mullins: “A lot of work went into building this Church, a huge amount of effort by the community, people who are still with us and some who are gone so it’s only right that we would celebrate their endeavour 50 years on. ”
