Shandon Sunrise

Shandon Bells once again hosted a dawn chorus this May Day, welcoming the first day of  summer in our Shandon Sunrise event. At 6.02am, sunrise on Wednesday 1st May, the dawn was met with a chorus of voices singing from the bell tower of the iconic Church of St.  Anne, Shandon and followed by an ecumenical service with Rev. Brian O’Rourke. This  special performance has become a much loved annual event and marks the ancient celebration of  the first day of summer.
