Perfect Music for a Perfect Day

Coolagown, Fermoy

Scarlet String Quartet played with Caroline Fraher, singer, for this wedding in Coolagown Church.

There is a painting of the Last Supper above the altar, which was painted by a man from Youghal who was working for a kitchen fitters company. Apparently Judas on the right (without halo) is the face of his boss…

Here we are enjoying the acoustics…
