Boyle Singers' Circle - 19th Jan 2008

The night of 19th January 2008 at the Boyle Singers' Circle was dedicated to the memory of Ken Ó Dúill, who passed away very unexpectedly on the 9th January, in Dublin. Ken was an enthusiastic and friendly presence at the Boyle (and South Sligo, and Mohill, and Góilín and many more) singers' session(s). Ken had many songs and we hadn't heard the half of them. He's sorely missed by all his friends.

Ken's partner, the story-teller Susie Minto, travelled over from Aughavas and took part in the evening with a story and a song of her own. Helen Grehan, Breege Duffy and other regulars all sang. There were welcome new faces and new voices present too. Ken would have enjoyed the night.

The next Singers' night will be on Sat.16th Feb., in the back room of Wynne's, 10 - ish. All singers and listeners welcome.
