Stars, Choirs and Carol is the brainchild of Richard Mulcahy who appeared on RTE’s Secret Millionaire in 2012. Richard spent ten days in Limerick undercover. He spent time with various organisations and charities and was so inspired by the Cliona Ring Foundation he decided to dedicate his time to help raise funds for the charity.

Cliona’s Foundation, a unique charity providing financial assistance for families with critically ill children in Ireland, and The Sanctuary, a charity bringing stillness and harmony into peoples’ lives, will both benefit from the event.

“This is a perfect ending to the Year of The Gathering. We are a nation of storytellers and songwriters. No other medium brings hope and raises the spirits like the power of song. I hope people will partake in this worthy event.”

SrStanislaus Kennedy, founder of the Sanctuary, said about the event;

“Christmas is a time of peace and goodwill and we are delighted that the Sanctuary is associated with this great festival”

Croke Park through the auspice of the Gaelic Athletic Association has generously given the stadium free for this worthy cause.
