In 1919 the first Dáil con­vened in Dublin and the first Demo­cratic Pro­gramme for Gov­ern­ment was de­vised. There have been changes in Ir­ish so­ci­ety over the last cen­tury that would have been in­con­ceiv­able to those first TDs. This very spe­cial con­cert will re­flect on 100 years of the Ir­ish Repub­lic through po­etry, mu­sic, and song – in­clud­ing a newly com­posed work by Fi­achra Trench and fea­tur­ing some of Ire­land’s finest artists.

This con­cert is cu­rated by Ea­mon Sweeney, Mu­sic Net­work Artist in Res­i­dence 2018 an ini­tia­tive of Mu­sic Net­work in part­ner­ship with Wick­low County Coun­cil Arts Of­fice and Mer­maid County Wick­low Arts Cen­tre.
