Ballymena Borough Church Members Forum have invited ‘The Priests’ to headline a cross-community concert on Friday, June 6, at 7.30 pm in St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland church, Castle Street.
The Priests are a renowned classical musical group made up of three Roman Catholic priests all from Northern Ireland.
Fr. Eugene and his brother Fr. Martin O’Hagan are originally from the village of Claudy while Fr. David Delargy is from Ballymena. After signing a deal with SonyBMG in 2008 the priests recorded their debut album in Northern Ireland and Rome, with the unusual honour of having been allowed to record in St. Peter’s Basilica, The Vatican.
Tickets for the local concert go on sale on Monday, April 7, at 9am and can be purchased by going to https://aneveningwiththepriests.eventbrite.co.uk.
After expenses the funds raised from ticket sales will go to the cross-community team going from Ballymena to Ethiopia in July with Habitat for Humanity NI.
