Ceol le Chéile is an intergenerational choir made up of older people, children and young people, male and female from all walks of life in Donegal. This choir of ages was a project established by Donegal County Council as part of the Donegal Age Friendly Programme with the aim of promoting social inclusion and developing stronger relationships between older people, children and young people.


The night concluded with a standing ovation following a stunning rendition of a “Time to Say Goodbye”.


This initiative is funded by Healthy Ireland, Donegal County Council, Local Links Bus, Creative Ireland, with support from LYIT.
