Established in 1998 Celtic Horizon Tours specialises in group tours to Ireland from North America, Canada, Mexico and Europe.

With over 16 years experience in bringing groups of all sizes to Ireland from marching bands and choirs to special interest tours from Universities and schools. 

A niche market that Celtic Horizon Tours successful cater to is Motorcycle Tours of Ireland.

What better way to tour the highways and bye-ways of Ireland than on a motor bike.

Celtic Horizon Tours ensure that every client coming to Ireland has time on their itinerary to meet and greet with the locals be it an event with a local band a school Irish Dancing Group or choir.

We find our customers who form this bond with Ireland and its people return on tour time and again.

The Millicent Singers

Millicent Singers are a mixed adult choir (SATB) and perform regular concerts in the North Kildare area, mainly in the Clane area. Founded in 1996, the choir is directed today by Alan Kelly. The choir have developed a strategic plan which will steer their development over the coming years. One of their best initiatives to date has been the introduction of free membership for those aged 18-30 or those in full time education.

 

In the past few years the choir have been invited to perform with New Dublin Voices and Celine Byrne while also performing at the National Concert Hall and live on RTE Television with the Army No. 1 Band. The choir have won seven competitions in four years (2014-2017) including Sacred Music and Light Music at the 2017 Mayo International Choral Festival.

 

The choir comprises 39 members at present who come from Clane, Prosperous, Naas & surrounding areas.
