The pupils of Killarney’s Holy Cross Mercy National School had a surprise visitor this week when Dancing with the stars finalist Cliona Hagan called to launch her new “Just Sing” project.

The Just Sing music project will consist of 4 weeks of coral workshops with Cliona and Amy Barr (Just Stage It) culminating in a very special performance in the INEC Killarney when Cliona will be joined by the pupils of the Holy Cross Mercy School choir on the 4th of October 2019.

Speaking to The Kerry Journal, Principal Ursula Coffey said “The upcoming concert is creating a great buzz amongst our pupils and our school community and it is an amazing opportunity for them to showcase their musical talents. We are delighted that Cliona and Amy will be working with them again in the next school year. The Mercy school has always had a strong tradition of musical education providing opportunities for the pupils to develop their skills in the creative arts and these choral workshops are another wonderful experience.”

Posting on her Facebook page Cliona said “So delighted to have launched my “Just Sing” project with these amazing kids at Holy Cross Mercy School in Killarney! These kids will be performing with me at the INEC Killarney as part of my Dance On theatre concert tour on October 4th – Tickets available now from
