A COUNTRY MUSIC CHRISTMAS CONCERT is to take place in Lisdoonvarna to help fund urgent repairs to the Corpus Christi Church.

Staged by Fr Robert McNamara and the church organisation, the concert which will take place on Sunday December 11th from 6pm aims to bring in money to fund urgent repairs to the church and roof.

Country and gospel singer James Kilbane brings his Christmas concert to North Clare. It will be his first visit to the county since COVID. “Clare has always been a special place for me. In the past we always one have wonderful nights. County Clare is an amazing place and people for their love of music and song. I am really looking forward to the Lisdoonvarna concert. It will be a real special night,” he said.

Corpus Christi Church was constructed in 1868, sections of the roof need repairs while the slates and gutters need to be replaced with dampness caused inside the church. Fr McNamara is hopeful to have internal sealing added to the church and extensive repairs to the church’s bell tower.

Additional funds would be allocated to the maintenance of other church buildings in Kilshanny, Doolin, and Toovahera.

Donation tickets costing €15 are available from Howley’s Shop in Kilfenora, Dolly Jordan shop in Lisdoonvarna, the church committee members or direct from 087 9763559.
