Ashbourne Church Choir sings each Sunday at the 11.00am Mass in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Ashbourne, Co. Meath.
The choir consists of over forty members, of all ages. Giovanna and Ephrem Feeley are the choir directors.
Founded in 1979 to mark the visit of Pope John Paul II to Ireland, the choir's central philosophy is an understanding of the choir’s role in leading the congregation’s weekly prayer and praise. Building on the rich corpus of motets and sacred choral works in the choral repertoire, the choir also sing a wealth of traditional hymnody and new, contemporary church music by Irish and international composers, some specially written for Ashbourne Church Choir. Celebrating the Sunday liturgy is the primary focus of the choir, culminating in the great feasts and seasons of the Church year.
