MERCY MOUNTHAWK held its annual Christmas carol event in St Brendan’s Church on Thursday night.

Two choirs sang on the night, one made up of 63 students and the other a 25 strong group of Mounthawk teachers took to the stage to show off their vocal prowess at the event.

“The choir has grown and grown down the years. We did our first one the year the school opened, It’s one of the really special events in the school calendar,” said Mercy Mounthawk¬†Deputy Principal Pat Fleming.

The concert featured a full choir with a male section. They were led by two teachers, Sinead Muldoon Walsh and Katrina O’Sullivan.

“The choir have put in huge work. Pretty much everyday after school and practically every lunch time for the guts of the last month they have been preparing for tonight,” said Pat Fleming.

“We’re very proud of our choral group, they’ll be entering the Cork Choral Festival again. They came forth last year so they’re really hoping to go a few steps further next year,” he said.
