Daniel and Majella O’Donnell to headline virtual St Patrick’s Day concert in Laois parish

Irish singers Daniel and Majella O’Donnell headline a star-studded virtual St Patrick’s Day concert planned for Laois.

Rathdowney parish will host the Donegal duo – along with a number of other musical talents from 7pm on Wednesday March 17.

For half of 2020, Fr Martin Delaney hosted a weekly online concert from the church.

Back in March when the pandemic started and churches were shut, Fr Delaney invited musicians to perform via webcam from the Rathdowney church.

Thousands of viewers have enjoyed 24 different performers over six months until the concerts concluded in September.

Along with Daniel and Majella, a host of people who took part in those performances will take part again on St Patrick’s Day.

These include: The Scott Family of Borris in Ossory, Margaret Murphy, Anne Marie Delaney & Friends, The Creagh Family, Paul O’Brien & The High Kings, Michael English and Fr Liam Lawton.

The concert will be available to view on the Rathdowney Parish website. 

While the concert will continue to be available to view through the website after St Patrick’s Day for those of who cannot join in on the night.
