From A Distance is a community initiative encouraging people to recommence socializing safely after lockdown.
These 30-40 minute bi-weekly concerts will allow people to see some familiar faces From A Distance
while also enjoying some musical treats from local talents such as Mike Hanrahan, Monica Morgan Kearney,
Joan Hanrahan and friends, and many more to be announced.

These concerts will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2pm, free of charge, for the month of August
in SS Peter and Paul Cathedral Ennis.
The Civil Defence will be present to ensure all guidelines are followed and safety measures are in place.

Cocooning has seen many vulnerable members of our society isolated from friends, family for a substantial length of time.
Now that lockdown is over, these concerts aspire to create a safe welcoming environment to bridge the fears, worries,
and doubts people may have about getting out again to enjoy live music and entertainment.

and mental health as the world settles into it’s “new normal”.

Bishop Willie Walsh has said, “I found the lockdown relatively easy.
But now that things are reopening and our towns are getting busier, it feels more challenging in ways”.

Bishop Willie Walsh and Dr. Maire Finn are available for interview.
