We have all struggled with Lockdown, but LOVE Castleconnell have been very busy behind the scenes. We all know and admire the stunning imposing building that is All Saints Church in Stradbally Castleconnell, but it always comes as a surprises as to how few of the local community have actually been inside the doors.
We are delighted to give you an opportunity tonight to walk through the doors and watch a spectacular show in featuring musical prodigy pianist Kevin Jansson.
The Castleconnell Autumn Concert Series 2020 are brought to you in association with the Culture and Arts Office of Limerick City and County Council, with financial support from the Arts Council and Creative Ireland.
