Everyone is very busy practicing the chorus songs like ‘Free The People’, ‘On the One Road’ and ‘Oro Se Do Bheatha Bhaile’ and adding marching and movement, while the soloist are all adding the final finesse to songs like ‘Four Green Field’s which will be sang by Sinead O’Neill who plays Mother Ireland, ‘Bless This House’ which will be sang by Frank Ryan who plays Fr.Flanagan and Patriot Game which is sang by Andrew O’Riordan who plays a young rebel in the show.
