In 1919 the first Dáil convened in Dublin and the first Democratic Programme for Government was devised. There have been changes in Irish society over the last century that would have been inconceivable to those first TDs. This very special concert will reflect on 100 years of the Irish Republic through poetry, music, and song – including a newly composed work by Fiachra Trench and featuring some of Ireland’s finest artists.

This concert is curated by Eamon Sweeney, Music Network Artist in Residence 2018 an initiative of Music Network in partnership with Wicklow County Council Arts Office and Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre.

“…the music was pleasing, exciting and individual…….marvellously performed”
