Australian audiences will finally get the chance to see Dara Ó Briain’s new show Voice Of Reason when his national tour kicks off in Brisbane. The television host returns to his roots as a stand-up comedian for a fast-paced and provocative performance.
Told through Irish music and dance, A TASTE OF IRELAND explores magical tales spanning generations of Irish storytelling and culture. This world class show features World, All Ireland & National Champion Irish dancers, and musicians from around the globe performing unique music and dance that reflects the story that is Ireland.
Melodic Celtic flute is complemented by raw and rhythmic guitar to create the heart felt sounds of Ireland. The show features a dynamic musical duo and impressive dancing rarely seen outside of the World Championship stage. "A Taste of Ireland" was composed and choreographed in Dublin and is quickly on its way to becoming the new frontier in Irish entertainment.
Created and produced by Pace Entertainment Group, the show will transport the audience to a time and place where tunes, taps and tradition showcase the very essence of celebrating the Irish Spirit.

THE IRISH SONGBOOK - NATIONAL AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2019
When you put together three brilliant Tenor voices with natural Irish charm, singing spine-tingling Classical, Folk, Irish, Gaelic and Pop favourites in stacked three-part harmonies, then mix them up with quick witted banter, you have the CELTIC TENORS.
It’s all about the music, the harmonies and the fun. Three unique solo voices, but when called upon – one tenor sound! The Celtic Tenors will perform The Irish Songbook on their Australian tour with such classics as Finnegan’s Wake, In The Gloaming, Song For Ireland, Danny Boy, The Dutchman, Caledonia, you Raise Me Up and many more favourites.
With a polished international reputation and just over a million album sales world-wide, the Celtic Tenors offer something truly unique. The skill, range and ability of world-class tenors combined with the personality and fun of genuine Irish performers.
In 2009, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin, 400 people set-off on the inaugural Darkness into Light 5km walk to raise funds for Pieta House. From small beginnings, the movement has grown year on year and in 2018 over 200,000 people took part in 150 locations, in 16 countries across 5 continents.
Each year the walk provides an opportunity for people to connect with their local community and to show their support for those who have been bereaved by suicide. Our team of volunteers, in Ireland and overseas, return year on year to help make the experience a rewarding one and to help us all continue to raise awareness in the global fight against suicide and self-harm.
Walk with us, talk with us, so that together we can create a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.
