Papal Visit August 2018

The historic visit of Pope Francis to Ireland took place last week in August – and I was there as a Volunteer at both #WMF2018 Concert at Croke Park, and for the #Papal Mass at Phoenix Park. At the Phoenix Park there was a big crowd (despite the change from sunshine to wind and rain!), and the singing by the choirs of 1000s from countrywide was wonderful. The Croke Park Concert was also full of emotion. A night of story-telling, music and culture from here and of the many other communities now living in Ireland. The official music composed for this event is available on youtube at the link below.

Now Term 1 is nearly here..

Today I created a page for Piano Lessons, which you can find on the site menu. There is a short list covering the formats for my lessons. Please send me a message if you any queries about the length of your class, or about what the lesson typically involves. Thanks. Melissa

Sizzling hot out there!

Adjusting to the summer weather has it challenges. Doors and windows open all night. Curtains closed all day.  Solution seems to be trips in the car, and visits to our favourite garden venues with airy cafeterias. #MountUsherGardens – plenty  of perching on benches and soaking up the stunning views. And a second outing to Airfield Farm and Gardens, and a tour of life in the Victorian house.
