“Uplifting, full of hope, moving and beautifully made” - RTÉ Ten
Music teacher Ron Cooney has been working in the Republic of Ireland’s only high-rise housing estate for fifteen years. During this time he has seen the area undergo a dramatic transformation, including the demolition of six of its seven tower blocks. The young people of Ballymun have had an extraordinary experience, and Ron sets out to produce a collection of music that gives voice to their story and challenges the negative views many still hold of the area. Working with composer Daragh O’Toole, Ron’s ambition is for his talented students to write and play music to create a world class collection. What Ron and his students achieve is simply amazing.
Ballymun Lullaby is a story that needs to be heard.
