Portiuncula University Hospital Voice Choir

Portiuncula University Hospital Voice Choir

17 staff from Portiuncula University Hospital are part of the Health Voices Choir which is comprised of staff from across the Health Service. The choir have recently recorded two songs for Christmas, “Carol of the Bells” and “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”.

The recordings are available on iTunes. The cost is 99cent per song.  All proceeds from sales of the songs will go to Pieta House, the organisation which  provides a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm.

The Staff Choir Project was launched by the HR Division in May, with the support of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation and Beaumont Hospital.  The project got underway with a request to members of staff choirs in the health service to get involved in recording a Christmas 2016 song to raise funds for charity.

The first choir practice took place on Saturday, 1st October 2016 in Blanchardstown.  Two more practices were held on Saturday, 15th October in Tallaght and on Sunday, 23rd October in Blanchardstown.  The recording took place on Sunday, 6th November in Tallaght Hospital.

The songs are available to download via iTunes here
