Wicklow Scenic and Musical History Coach Tour
I am Wicklow born and bred and have a keen interest in my county's cultural heritage. I am an opera trained singer and traditional Irish musician. This tour is about learning Wicklows heritage through the songs depicting the stories.. from lands taken with deception, violence and guile, 1,000s deported for trivial crimes to build the colony of Australia, severely affected famine locations, evictions, estate owners availing of the famine to remove unwanted tenants and "square" their estates. I have staged Musical History events in Kilruddery House and Wicklow Jail and staged Living Dublin 1916 for RTE featuring classical, choral and traditional Irish music. I look forward to taking you on a musical history tour with songs and stories at Wicklows most iconic scenic locations.
