Ballymun Lullaby


9th December 2009

The Ballymun Music Programme is a non-profit children's music education programme that is sponsored by DIT Community Links programme. It was founded nearly fifteen years ago with a very simple agenda: to provide an introduction to music through free music lessons in a community that had almost no access to music education.

As time went on more schools became involved, more music teachers came on board and the range of instruments being taught grew to include almost the full line-up of orchestral instruments.


Today The Ballymun Music Programme runs with the support of nine National schools in the area. At second level the Programme provides support to the Ballymun Trinity Comprehensive School in preparation for Junior and Leaving Certificate Music and maintains a scholarship programme in conjunction with the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama for exceptionally talented children.

The Music Programme has just released its first CD 'Ballymun Lullaby: 4 Songs For Choir & Orchestra' and it is available now in all major record Shops for just €6.99. It is also for sale on iTunes. All profits will be used to facilitate the continuation and development of the Ballymun Music Programme. For more information visit the official website at

This CD was recorded by the RTÉ National Concert Orchestra, RTÉ Cór na nÓg, and the choir of The Ballymun Music Programme, and listening to the ?Toy?s Waltz? track is guaranteed to induce a very festive, magical mood!
