We are honoured to have been announced as the very first winners of Irish Rail and RTE Radio One Mooney Show “Journey’s on Us” competition. We were delighted to have been asked to sing for commuters while they waited for their trains at Dublin’s Heuston Station on Monday 29th April.Brenda Donohoe from the Mooney Show captured the atmosphere in the station while we serenaded passers by with some forthcoming songs from our summer concert. We will be using this opportunity to continue with our outreach work, so look out for us soon as the end of a train line! Thanks very much Irish Rail! We were delighted with the kind comments of passers by and received some lovely messages of support on Facebook and Twitter afterwards from people who had never heard us before. You can listen to our performance on the Mooney Show via this link.
