The peaceful setting of the Circle of Life Commemorative Garden in Quincentennial Park, Salthill, will be the venue for a Comnnunity Carols Event o Sunday at 4pm.
Organised by local Ccarity, Strange Boat Donor Foundation, this seasonal event will give people the opportunity to remember loved ones while also celebrating the joy of Christmas and the Winter Solstice in the tranquil and healing atmosphere of this very special garden.
Everyone will probably know the airs of the many much loved carols but they may not remember the words, so lyrics will be provided. And as it will be nearing dusk people might bring some form of light for reading.
Galway group Dordán will play some of their Christmas music and there will also be seasonal readings from Darach Ó Tuairisg and poet, Moya Cannon.
This event will depend on weather conditions on the day so it is important to check Strange Boat website oat the weekend, also local news on Galway Bay FM and Raidio na Gaeltachta.
