Shandon Bells will once again host a dawn chorus this May Day, with Cork Chamber Choir welcoming the first day of summer in our Shandon Sunrise event.

At 06.05am, sunrise on Sunday 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 was followed by an ecumenical service. This unique performance has become a much loved annual event and marks the ancient celebration of the first day of summer.
