Return to Ireland - North Clare Happiness project

On Sunday night Fred and I attended a lovely concert put on here in Lahinch for the North Clare Happiness Project.
"The North Clare Happiness Project presents regular, free or low coast happiness-inspired events in the local area, including their annual Happiness Week."
The project was started three years ago, in support of mental health.

The cost was free but the organizers suggested a one euro donation, which we gladly accommodated.

The concert was delightful. It began with the children singing a series of songs. The kids were adorable. Before they actually sang they ran around the auditorium and generally had fun in complete pandemonium. Once they settled down and and began to sing, we were entertained with an adorable recital.

And the choir master was definitely enjoying herself.

Then the adults of the local choir got up and proceeded to sing some more lovely songs, including one from David Bowie (Major Tom), by Cold Play (Viva La Vida, one of my all time favourite songs). And last but not least the Beatles (I get a little help from my friends).

And I love that it is all in aid of mental health. Brilliant initiative.
