Event: Christmas at the National Library of Ireland

National Library of Ireland

Step away from the commercial hubbub outside and take time to breathe and reflect. Christmas should be about carols and calm as much as till-ringing and clamouring. The National Library steps in with some free offerings to aid reflection and hand-holding. On November 30, tales of Christmas traditions and stories from the Library’s collections, with particular reference to WB Yeats and Lady Gregory will be performed by Candelit Tales. On December 7, there’s a performance of Patrick Kavanagh’s ‘A Christmas Childhood’, including a selection of Christmas songs by the award-winning Caintairí Avondale Choir, who have a special focus on a-cappella, oratorio and early music. The following Saturday the Rosemount Singers, who will serenade us with a selection of festive Christmas carols.
