Singing trio The Priests will be performing at Queen’s Charter Day Dinner on Friday (26 November), ahead of the launch of their new album Noel, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

A limited number of tickets are still available for the event in the Great Hall, which is organised annually by Queen’s Graduates’ Association (QGA) to mark the founding of Queen's as a College in 1845 and as a full University in 1908.

Members of the group, Fathers Martin and Eugene O’Hagan and Father David Delargy, were awarded the QGA Graduate of the Year Award, sponsored by First Trust Bank, in 2009.

Oonagh Ferrity, President of the QGA, said: “It is a great honour for the Queen’s Graduates Association to once again welcome back Fathers Martin and Eugene O’Hagan and Father David Delargy.  We are extremely grateful they have taken time out of their busy schedule to entertain us on what promises to be a most enjoyable evening.”

Adding another musical dimension to the evening will be student-led operatic company Spark Opera. While Professor Peter Gregson, Vice-Chancellor of Queen’s University and Naomi Long MP will also join guests on the night. Currently MP for Belfast East, Naomi graduated from Queen’s University in 1994 and is also deputy leader of the Alliance Party of Northern Ireland.
