Singer, Maret O Hehir put together a lovely programme of entertainment for a concert for patients at Cahercalla Hospital Co Clare yesterday. There were singers, dancer,s flutes fiddle, harmonica and a harp for the day that was in it . Fr Fergus McEveney sang one of my favourite numbers Kreisler's The Old Refrain. John Gavin , ace harmonica player had them up dancing with a selection of waltzes. Sineid White visiting from Cork gave us a lovely version of Red is the Rose and my selection included the queen of Irish airs, an Culfhionn. The happy feet of Lissycasey Set Dancers gave us all a lift and the versatile musician and 'Clare's Got Talent' judge, Nigel Bridge was accompanist.
