Kinnegad's evening of music, poetry and song for Ukraine
Kinnegad Welcome Parish Group and Association of Ukrainians in Ireland (AURI) host evening of music, poetry and song
With only three weeks to make the event possible, the Kinnegad Parish Welcome Group, and the Association of Ukrainians in Ireland (AURI), brought together an array of talent to mark 365 days of war, on Sunday evening.
The Irish and Ukrainian communities enjoyed traditional Irish and Ukrainian music, song, poetry and dance in the Church of the Assumption, Kinnegad, and there was a large crowd in the church to see the talent that shines in both communities.
The gathering observed a minute’s silence to remember families and friends affected by the war in Ukraine. The day also marked what the Ukrainians recognise as Forgiveness Sunday.
Sinéad Gannon, whose idea the event was, acknowledged the support and hard work of the volunteers and the support of parish priest, Fr Gilroy, “who helped us move mountains”.
