Unwrapped 2011

In 2011 Unwrapped took the theme of the battle between the Holly and Oak King. In many Celtic-based traditions, the cycle of their clash turn the seasons from the Winter to the Summer Solstice and have inspired many of the Christmas and winter traditions we celebrate today.

The event featured original music and artwork as well as the lighting of the County Christmas Tree. There were performances from the Armagh Rhymers; Habemus Choir; St. Kilian’s Church Choir, Kingswood; St. Mark’s Church Choir, Springfield; Suburban Sounds Choir; art work from Killian Redmond; writing from Sue Hasset; original music by Gerry Horan and Michael Fleming; costumes by Tadashi Kato; lantern and doorway design by Sláinne Linnane; and living tableaux by Jennifer Webster with members of Tallaght Young Filmmakers

The event closed with a reception and refreshments along with traditional music performances in RUA RED’s foyer.
