The standard in this competition is very high – even being inviting to participate is seen as an accolade.

The National Competitions involves over 100 Adult, Youth and School choirs from all over Ireland – in all there can be more than 5000 singers in the city for the week, so if you enjoy Choral music this is an event not to miss!
