Jubilee Concert 91

In 1991, a spectacular concert was staged as part of Canon John Treanor's Golden Jubilee Celebrations.

The following photos have been extracted from the video of the concert and, while they are not of the best quality, I think they will bring back some fantastic memories.



The Ravens, featuring a very young Harry Convery and Armand Gaillard were the first to perform
