2) On Sunday 14th June, Music Matters, and members of our Musical Memories and Memory Lane Choirs, travelled to the beautiful “Marble City” of Kilkenny. This trip was made possible with thanks to the Irish Rail “Journey’s on Us” initiative. 

We had an action-packed day – singing alongside Kilkenny Gospel Choir at MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre, being filmed for Irish TV and seeing a spectacular show “Movie Mayhem” at The Watergate Theatre
