“It was a real joy to host the Abbeydale Singers here in the Cathedral; we were delighted with your music…you are an accomplished and talented choir. For the past few years we have had a dearth of choirs coming from the mainland and this has been to our loss: this is why your visit to us was all the more treasured…do continue to do the good work of producing such splendid music…”   –   The Very Revd Dermot Dunne, Dean, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. October 2014.
