SING A SONG OF DOCKLANDS is from the vision of David Brophy, in consultation with the communities of the Docklands, using song to celebrate and connect the communities of old and new Irish that make the Docklands a dynamic and vibrant maritime gateway to the city.

In 2022, Dublin City Council and partners Sing Ireland awarded four new commissioned songs to be developed with the local communities of the Docklands.

The awardees were:

1. Ringsend/Irishtown – Max Greenwood

2. Grand Canal/Pearse Street – Alain Servant

3. North Wall Sheriff Street – Carmel Whelan / Justine Nantale 

4. East Wall – Macdara Yeates

Participating groups were all local to the Docklands, such as the Dockers Preservation Society, the Ringsend Irishtown Community Centre, City Quay National School & Central Model Senior School and the residents of Grand Canal Dock and Pearse Street communities. 

The commissions will be supported by Sing Ireland affiliate choirs King’s Hospital School Choir, Cór na nÓg, Guinness Choir and Maryfield College Choir in a night of songs and celebration with Musical Director David Hayes.

Guest supporting acts Jerry Fish, DJ Robbie Kitt and Ciarán Kelly will also be performing on the night.
