Members of Fermoy International Choir who have re-recorded the local ballad 'My Home In Fermoy' in time for St Patrick's Day.

Combining the past with the present, the Fermoy International Choir is preparing to share a unique piece of work in time for St Patrick’s Day.

Though somewhat confined by Covid-19 restrictions, the choir, which has produced pieces of work for Culture Night, Christmas and National Thank You Day in recent months, has re-recorded the local ballad ‘My Home In Fermoy’ which will be shared from Monday next.
