Castlebar Gospel Choir

Enniscrone, May 29th, 2010

We arrived en masse to the Diamond Coast Hotel for a day of rehearsal and some relaxation

 

 

The Rehearsal:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time for Lunch:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back to Work again:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time for relaxation in the bar afterwards:

One man had put in a big effort at the rehearsal

 

 

More were relaxing outside (until caught by the director)

 

 

 

Others went for a walk at the beach:

 

 

 

 

Time to go to the restaurant:

 

...but there was the simple matter of a barrier:

 

 

...which was safely negotiated by all!

 

 

The food at the Golf Club Restaurant was lovely:

 

 

 

 

 

Afterwards, someone took a fancy to one of the vehicles parked outside:

 

...but our secretary saved the day:

 

 

 

The sun was about to set:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But most choir members found a nicer place to hang out:

The hotel bar again

(Is that the Eurovision they're all watching?)

 

 

 

The next morning:

A quiet, healthy breakfast

 

 

Thanks to Moirín for all her work in organising the day.

Brendan introduced a social dimension to make the practice more interesting and enjoyable.

Kathy and Marese were indefatigable in leading us through a long session of singing.

Thanks also to Andrea who organised the meal.
