I am very honoured to have been invited to perform a collection of songs, inspired by my great-gran aunt Catherine Rooney (nee Byrne), at the centenary celebrations in Dublin this Easter Monday 28th March 2016. As part of RTÉ Reflecting the Rising I will be performing in the wonderfully historic setting that is The Four Courts. Accompanied by Seamus Devenny (violin and percussion) and Tim Jarvis (cello). In addition to our performance at the Four Courts we will also be performing one of the songs from this collection to a live broadcast audience at the Albert Theatre in the Royal College of Surgeons on St. Stephen’s Green, which will be aired on RTÉ Radio One between 3pm and 4pm on Easter Monday. This programme is all about the role of women in 1916 and will be presented by Keelin Shanley.
