Davis College Choir Performs at launch of Focus Ireland campaign

Davis College Choir performing at Kent Station in Cork city.

Davis College School Choir was honoured to be chosen to perform at the launch of the Focus Ireland Christmas campaign in Cork’s Kent Station on Thursday last. The charity shop was forced to cease trading following the fire in Douglas Village Shopping Centre but was offered the opportunity to operate a pop-up shop in Kent Station as part of its ‘Home for Christmas’ campaign. At the launch of the shop, Davis College Choir, made up of students from across various year groups, performed for over an hour, singing many well-known Christmas classics as well as other favourites. The choir was accompanied by teacher and harpist Sinead Ryan, and conducted by Music teacher Muireann Hannon. The College choir is well used to public appearances, having performed for over 500 people in Cork City Hall last year at the opening ceremony of the Davis College Model United Nations Conference. They are also an integral part of the school show and perform at awards ceremonies and graduations in the school.

Davis College sport
Davis College senior footballers have progressed to the Munster semi-finals after a good win over St. Joseph’s, Kilkee, last week. The game was a close encounter with Davis College coming from behind to win by two points on what was a difficult day, weatherwise. While our footballers had a good day on Thursday, our U17 soccer team weren’t as lucky on Friday. They came up against a strong Christian Brothers side in a tough Munster Cup encounter and unfortunately lost. Our U16 girls had a great run in their county basketball competition and progressed to the quarter finals, only to be defeated by Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí Leighinin in what was a highly competitive game.
