Cór Ban Cúil Aodha & Peadar Ó Riada with special guests Clare Horgan & Máire Ni Chéilleachair

Peadar Ó Riada formed this choir in 1985 as he felt that the female creative energy was not getting its fair share of attention while the men’s Cór Chuil Aodha held sway on stage at home and abroad.  They rehearse every Wednesday in An Draigehan, Cúil Aodha and all their meetings and works are through the medium of the Irish language.

The choir has two major works that are exceptionally long and difficult. These works were composed by Peadar Ó Riada and rehearsed and learnt over a 20 year period. They were performed back to back for the first time in Early May 2010. They are “Caoineadh Airt Uí Laoighre” and “Laoi na Laoithe”. In recent times the choir has been assembling and recording a whole new series of works based on poems by Seamus Heaney, Donal Ó Liatháin, Padraig Mac Pairais and traditional songs and material.

Tickets €15 / €12. Pre-booking essential on 066 9478956.

Art makes us human and true art can make us truer to who we can be as human beings. The song, the poem, the dance, the painting may be beautiful but they truly move us only if they express emotional truths. These songs of Red have moved me greatly. He sings to me, down in my soul – Dr. Maya Angelou, America’s Poet Laureate & Pulitzer Prize Winn
