The Abbey Christian Brothers’ Grammar Newry is set to host platinum selling artists and the world record holders for the fastest selling UK debut album for a classical act, none other than, The Priests.

The Priests exploded onto the mainstream with their debut album which has sold more than one million copies in Ireland alone, they have toured the world and before they set off to America for a list of shows, they are making a quick stop at the Abbey Grammar School on the way.

The Priests are a classical musical group made up of three Catholic priests, all from Northern Ireland. Fr Eugene and his brother Fr Martin O’Hagan are originally from the village of Claudy, County Derry with the family now residing in Derry whilst Fr David Delargy is from Ballymena, County Antrim.

The funds raised from this prestigious event are going to a very worthy cause, to help provide resources for educational and health projects in Zambia.

The school’s Zambia Immersion Team are incredibly thankful for both the opportunity to hear The Priests live but also for their taking time out of a busy schedule to perform for the school – and all for a great cause.

Also performing will be the Cloughmore Male Voice Choir, Abbey past pupil and gifted pianist Sean Rooney and also the Abbey School Choir.

Tickets are available now for £20 from the General Office at the Abbey and from Carlin Records in Newry. Tickets are selling fast and it’s sure to be a full house on the night.

The Priests will be at the Abbey on Wednesday 6th March 2013. Doors are open at 7pm, the event is taking place in the Abbey performance hall.
