Laragh Glendalough notes December 15

Christmas Carols in the Monastic City

All are welcome to join us at 7.30 pm on Thursday 18 December for a unique Christmas celebration in one of the most evocative settings in Wicklow. 

We will begin with a candlelit procession through the monastic gates of Glendalough and proceed to the ruins of the cathedral for an evening of traditional carol singing in the monastic style. 

Some of our most familiar carols would have been sung here by the monks of Glendalough themselves in the 8 and 9 centuries. Admission is free and tea and coffee will be provided afterwards in the Glendalough Hotel courtesy of Pat Casey.  

Assemble in the hotel car park at 7.15 pm. Wrap up warmly and bring your own lantern/torch and singing voice. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Brockagh Centre is delighted to once again welcome Roundwood Variety Group for their annual show. Honk, The Ugly Duckling is full of music, laughter and fun and tells the story of a little duck and the cat who wants to have him for dinner.  

Evening performances will take place on Thursday 29 January at 7.30 pm and on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 January at 8 p.m. with matinées on Saturday 31 January and Sunday 1 February at 3 pm.
