Plenty of seasonal music in County Monaghan today. The Christmas tree lights were switched on outside the Courthouse in Monaghan after three local school choirs performed for the crowd. I was watching the Gaelscoil group with particular interest as a niece was in it. Nice to hear carols as Gaeilge.



Earlier in Castleblayney, Gloria from Tydavnet performed ‘One Day at a Time’ along with Jingle Bells and Christmas songs for the residents of St Mary’s in Castleblayney. She sang a few numbers solo, and also encouraged some of the audience o join in. Then the Monaghan Gospel Choir under the musical direction of David Drum combined with her to bring some seasonal joy to the elderly.
