They may not have been expecting it, but the choir of the Presentation Secondary School have been called upon to give one more rousing performance to make Kilkenny proud — help secure our bid for the European Capital of Culture.
The surprise announcement came from Kilkenny senior hurling manager Brian Cody, who was a special guest at last Thursday's launch. Mr Cody has been a bid ambassador for the Three Sisters bid from the outset.
“Congratulations everyone on your committment and success,” he said.
The Three Sisters judges are coming down to visit the region on July 13 as part of their assessment of the joint bid between Kilkenny, Waterford, and Wexford.
Mr Cody said th=he Three Sisters committee feel that they want to finish up with a taste of the excellence of our youth.
“You haven't been told yet,” he said, “but the wish is that the girls would perform as a choir as a 'final act'.”
“It will have huge benefits for the whole region if we get the Capital of Cultre,” he said.
