People of the Wild Atlantic Way –
Irene Dunne – Bantry, West Cork.
‘The story of a song is very important to me and I need to be able to connect and immerse myself in it. If I’m feeling down or going through a difficult time in my life, singing has always had the power to uplift me and change my mood.
One of my life’s ambitions is to sing opera and I’m currently rehearsing songs from Madame Butterfly with my auntie, who is a classical piano player. We both are not comfortable performing individually but together we give each other confidence, our ambition is to perform at this years Bantry Chamber Music Festival.’
