“I opened my bedroom curtains and the whole sky was red. Rehearsals had been taking place for the pantomine, but fortunately there was nobody inside at the time.”
“I used to listen to pop music until the age of nine when I decided that there must be something better out there. Pop music back then included songs like Love Letters in the Sand by Pat Boon. We had an orchestra at school which probably broadened my horizon a little.”
Meanwhile, Irene O’Leary from the Lough had an important message.
“I like to support the Irish Cancer Society as my husband passed away from the disease 15 years ago,” she said.
Lough Rovers player, Christopher Looney from Lehenaghmore spoke of his sporting hero — his coach — who also happened to be his father.
“My dad was a bit harder on me as a coach, probably because he didn’t want to give me special treatment. Everyone knew he was my dad since we lived in such a small area.”
Chris McGrath from Fermoy was also enjoying the trip.
“I’m doing a music course at the moment. I’ve always loved music because it’s so enjoyable and expressive.”
