Carnew Musical Society will celebrate their 50th anniversary with an Anniversary Concert on Easter Sunday night, 16th April in St. Brigid’s Hall commencing at 8pm. Rehearsals are well under way for this once in a lifetime concert, which has brought over fifty past and present members together under the musical direction of Lar Duffy to perform what will be a wonderful and nostalgic trip down memory lane.
