Celebrating Song Ties intergenerational community music project

 In News

Ceol Connected presented the 3rd annual Tradoodle Festival in November, and as part of this year’s festival, we were delighted to present Song Ties, a beautiful and impactful intergenerational community music project that harnessed the power of music and song to connect children in Lisdoonan National School with residents in Castleross Nursing Home.

Led by musicians Brioni Gallagher and Thomas Johnston, the children and adult participants each week received a creative pack that included a link to an interactive online workshop, activity pack, as well as a range of sensory resources. Live Zoom sessions brought the participants together on a weekly basis over Oct/Nov, and a special event is planned to celebrate everything the project participants have achieved.

It has been a magical experience finding the song ties that connect us together.
Song Ties was kindly funded by Creative Ireland and Monaghan County Council.  A special thanks to the residents and staff in Castleross Nursing Home, the children and staff in Lisdoonan National School, musician Barry Jay, and Glen at Sky Rocket – Digital Marketing Agency, and musician Brioni Gallagher over coordinated and nurtured the project.
