The choir are grateful to Fr. Paddy Pierce for the use of St. Joseph’s Church as the concert venue and for rehearsals on Monday evenings.

Belle Voci choir were also highly commended for their participation in the Sligo Choral Festival last month. The choir are grateful to Tipperary County Council for a grant which went towards travel expenses.
