Mrs Linda Stanley and Mrs Lila Stanley, ladies from the parish, will as usual, be on hand to take care of the seasonal floral decorations for this annual Christmas event.

The traditional Carol Service of “Nine Lessons and Carols” will feature readings by the first Lady of Thurles, Mayor Mrs Evelyn Nevin, aided by the President of Thurles Chamber of Commerce, Mrs Anne Strappe and Fine Gael UDC Councillor Mr Michael Cleary.

Music for the service will be provided by the talanted local musician Miss Ann-Marie Dwan, B.MUS. who will play the Church’s magnificent, century old pipe organ, which has been recently restored and from which music has not been heard publicly, now, for many years.

That much loved Christmas Carol “O Holy Night”, composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847, will be sung solo by local Thurles renowned Tenor, Mr. Michael Molumby, whose CD “Circling The Square”, recorded recently for charity, has almost been completely been sold out.

Other solo’s will be performed by local talents Miss Katie Lawless (also on flute) and Miss Rachel Willoughby, backed by members of the very talented Thurles Phoenix Production team, the churches chosen choir for this event.

All residents of Thurles and the surrounding Community, both young and old, are warmly invited to attend this truly traditional Christmas event.

Front and rear gates to St. Mary’s Church will be open, to allow for easy access and car parking, on the night.
