Ju­nior choir at Barn­town Church scoop sil­ver medal

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE ju­nior choir at Barn­town Church were the sil­ver medal win­ners in the All Ire­land Com­mu­nity Games com­pe­ti­tion fi­nal in Limerick.

In its first year - un­der the care­ful and ta­lented tute­lage of lo­cal school teacher Ann Stamp - the choir is still form­ing and looks set to grow from strength to strength in the years ahead.

The young singers get plenty of sup­port from the parish­ioners at­tend­ing the 11 a.m. Mass in Barn­town as well as their fam­i­lies.

Lo­cal cu­rate Fr. John Car­roll said that ‘this choir is a shin­ing gem among the many parish based groups and in­di­vid­u­als within Barn­town Cu­racy who strive weekly to give of their best across a mul­ti­plic­ity of en­deav­ours - from church main­te­nance and en­hance­ment, to school build­ing and over­sight and teach­ing, sports fa­cil­ity pro­vi­sion and devel­op­ment.’

Fr. Car­roll thanked Ms. Stamp and her co-work­ers and he spoke of the many bless­ings and op­por­tu­ni­ties that the road ahead will pro­vide. The day of the com­pe­ti­tion has been great fun with plenty of sing­ing on the bus on the way home.
