Army band coming to Collon

Mattock Rangers Active Retirement in Collon have some major stars coming to the club in March.

The Army Band of the 2nd Brigade are appearing in Concert, supported by local country singing star Matt Leavy, the renowned Collon School Choir, plus Paddy and Oliver Reilly.

The concert is in Mattock Rangers Community Centre on 4th March at 7pm. sharp. Admission Adults €10 and children €5.

The army band have a pretty local look to them. A number of the members are from the region and the conductor of the band is Captain John Carpenter.

His parents emigrated from Meath and Donegal emigrated to Australia in the 70s and Captain John was born there, but returned to Ireland with huge musical qualifications.

John's late father was Nicholas Carpenter who was a member of Mattock Rangers Club, so in many ways he's coming back home.

Tickets from committee members.
