Lee Valley Enterprise Board is planning a programme packed full of entertainment at Riverside Park Hotel this Autumn/Winter with a lively mix of music, local talent, nostalgia, theatre & dance.
Any profits the Lee Valley Enterprise Board make from the shows listed below will go back into local projects, including the restoration of the Church of Ireland in Macroom to create a cultural & tourism amenity which will hugely benefit the area.
Here is what we have lined up so far!
Lee Valley Enterprise Board created this website to promote all aspects of the town of Macroom and the beautiful Lee Valley in which it lies. Here you will find information about the business and enterprises of the area, the schools and clubs that provide education and recreation for its people and news of the people themselves in the Lee Valley Outlook pages.
Saturday November 18th – Show starts at 8:00pm
One of Ireland’s most beloved singer-songwriters, Christie Hennessy delighted audiences at home and abroad until his tragic and untimely death in 2007.
In this all-new show, celebrated entertainer Aonghus McAnally brings the Hennessy songbook to life with his uncanny recreation of his close friend Christie’s voice and guitar playing.

St Colman's Church Macroom
Sunday November 26th at 7:00pm
Following a spell-binding inaugural concert in Cork’s Everyman theatre and another at Cork’s iconic North Cathedral, St Colman's Church Macroom will play host to the sensational Alleluia! Hymns Celebrating the Faith of Our Fathers on Sunday November 26th next. Starring Linda Kenny (soprano), Ryan Morgan (Tenor), with Macroom Church Choir, Canovee Church Choir, Briery Gap Mixed Choir and St Joseph’s Primary School Choir, our Alleluia musicians (under MD Alan Carney), this promises to be a truly magical night. Early booking is advisable.
Remember when our churches rang out with the collective sound of hundreds of voices singing in praise? These beautiful simple hymns evoke memories of a forgotten simple era: going to mass each Sunday, the smell of incense, peeling the spuds for lunch, polishing the shoes, meeting the neighbours, the solemnity of the occasion, and yet the warm familiarity of the routine.
Come relive those times and sing with joy from your heart as we delve into the gorgeous repertoire of hymns from our childhood. Soul Of My Saviour, Queen of the May, Sweet Heart of Jesus, We Stand for God, O Mother I Could Weep for Mirth and many many more…
Our Box Office at South Square Macroom opens from from 11am to 2pm on Mondays, 11am to 4:30pm on Tuesdays, 11am to 2pm on Thursdays and 11am to 4:30pm on Fridays. For further info please call 026/41174 or 087/1663395.
