Private Classes

Most of the classes below are as advertised in the Parish Newsletter in late 2015 and 2016. I am just starting to update the Spring 2017 list now as new notices come in – see New for the latest updates.


Hi there, my name is Denise and I am delighted to introduce you to RINKA. I am bringing these fun-filled active classes to Limerick and will be running evening classes in Monaleen GAA hall. I am also offering the programmes in primary schools locally and would love if you could advertise my class on your page.

RINKA classes are a form of creative exercise for primary school-aged children and we have two main classes on offer: DRAMAFIT and BOUNCE

DRAMAFIT are energetic theatre classes which teach children about the importance of exercise and healthy lifestyle choices, whilst also encouraging good communication skills and confidence.

BOUNCE classes are multi-activity classes which cover basic gymnastic skills, athletic skills and team games.

You can contact me on 0838606444 or email me at and please visit our website

Aoide (pronounced Ay-oh-dee) is a new adult choir for all voices and all abilities led by professional opera singer Owen Gilhooly & the Mid-West Vocal Academy.

When: Monday’s 19:30 – 21:00 (possibly extending to 21:30 later in the term)

Where Kilmurry Arts and Heritage Centre, Castletroy, Limerick

Cost: €5 weekly plus yearly registration of €40

What to expect: NO AUDITIONS! Fun!

You can expect a stimulated and fun learning environment with keen focus on a solid breathing and vocal technique. We’ll be developing a new repertoire to cater for all tastes and we’ll be preparing for future performances maybe as soon as Christmas 2014 depending on how we progress! All this choir needs is some commitment and an openness to share and develop and it will flourish.

Singing for many people is an outlet for joy, stress relief and communication. These sessions will encourage all these aspects through warm ups, workshops and time with visiting instructors who can help to open our minds to so many possibilities. It’s going to be a great adventure for everyone so leave you’re cares at the door and come and sing your heart out!

Our Team is:

Director/Musical Director: Owen Gilhooly – Baritone
Assistant Musical Director: Helen Houlihan – Soprano
Accompanist: Irina Dernova – Piano
Conductor in Training: Kerry Jane Hurley – Soprano
