Trio of priests on stage in Opera House

By Esther Hayden

There will be a night of sensational music in the National Opera House on Tuesday, December 15, when The Priests take to the stage.

Frs Eugene, Martin and David will be in Wexford to present Christmas With The Priests singing much loved classics as well as cherished seasonal songs. The Priests are planning a new album for Spring 2016.

The debut album of Frs Martin O'Hagan, Eugene O'Hagan, and David Delargy sold 3 million copies securing them a place in the Guinness Book Of World Records, as the Fastest-Selling Classical debut album ever.

In September 2010, The Priests shared the stage with Pope Benedict XIV in London's Hyde Park to an audience of 80,000 while millions watched on TV at home. They continue to play many concerts each year in Europe and the USA and manage to balance their performing with parish life.
