Benburb Priory will play host to singing sensation, Fr. Ray Kelly on Sunday 3rd July. Fr. Ray will play a concert in our hall or outside in the courtyard: Irish weather permitting. Afterwards, he will join us in the Stables café for a meet and greet session.
Fr. Ray is a priest known for his interpretation of popular songs. He became famous in 2014 after a video of him singing Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah”, while officiating at a couple’s wedding, became a YouTube sensation. Now in 2022, it has received more than 84 million hits.
In 2018 Fr. Ray auditioned for the 12th series of Britain’s Got Talent, singing “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M. He made it to the live shows but he was eliminated in semi-final 5. He came fourth in the public voting. He is still the priest of St. Brigid′s & St. Mary′s parish at Oldcastle, County Meath, and a member of Saint Patrick’s Society for the Foreign Missions.
