Popular singing trio The Priests to play special concert in Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral

The popular singing trio The Priests return to Liverpool to perform a concert celebrating and supporting the centenary of the Liverpool Lourdes Pilgrimage together supporting the Metropolitan Cathedral of Liverpool.

Under the musical direction of Stephen Manning, they come together with Liverpool’s own international singer Danielle Thomas to perform this special concert.

The Priests are a classical musical group, made up of three Roman Catholic priests from the Diocese of Down and Connor in Northern Ireland. Fr. Eugene and his brother Fr. Martin O’Hagan are originally from the village of Claudy, County Londonderry with the family now residing in Derry whilst Fr. David Delargy is from Ballymena, County Antrim.

Fr Eugene O’Hagan is Vicar General of the Diocese of Down and Connor; Fr Martin O’Hagan is Parish Priest of the Parish of Newtownards and Comber with two churches: The Church of St. Patrick (Newtownards) and the Church of Our Lady of the Visitation (Comber). Diocese of Down and Connor and Fr David Delargy is Parish Priest of the Lough Shore Parishes of Whitehouse, Greencastle and St James in the Diocese of Down and Connor.

The trio have been singing together since they boarded in the 1970s as students at St MacNissi’s College, Garron Tower, County Antrim. After signing a deal with SonyBMG in April 2008, the priests, all from the Diocese of Down & Connor, recorded their debut album, “The Priests”, in Northern Ireland and Rome, with the unusual honour of having been allowed to record in St. Peter’s Basilica, The Vatican.

All three were appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2020 New Year Honours for services to music and to charity in Northern Ireland.

Tickets are now on sale for their concert in Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral on Thursday 12th October, priced £17.50 each. CLICK HERE
