Music for the Summertime featuring Simon Morgan (tenor) and Eamon Sweeney (guitar and lute), presented in the beautiful surroundings of St John’s Church, Clonmellon.
This will be a special summer concert, presented by the Derravaragh Music Association. Tickets, priced €20 are available now from Eventbrite.
St. John’s Church was built around 1790 and was used by the Church of Ireland for the next 200 years. Eventually, in the early 1990’s, it was deconsecrated and eventually became a ruin. It sits at the end of a lovely tree-lined avenue at the centre of the village of Clonmellon and is surrounded by a graveyard and garden.
The building has been fully restored and is now a space to display works of art and hold community based events.
