Battle, War & Peace: An Evening of Music, Reflection, Scripture & Poetry is a special event organised by both the Church of Ireland and Catholic St John the Baptist churches in Clontarf to reflect on the importance of peace. 

These events will take place on Friday 29th September (Clontarf Road) & Saturday 30 September (Seafield Road) 2017 8.00-10.30pm 

Because of the importance of peace and the continual challenge to it around the world from conflict, war and terrorism the Church of Ireland and Catholic St John the Baptist churches in Clontarf, Dublin are organising a number of major Peace Events over the next few years. These will be built around music and poetry and anchored in scripture readings on peace and reconciliation.

The first of these is at 8.00pm on Friday 29 September in St John the Baptist church, Clontarf Rd followed by Saturday 30 September at 8.00pm in St John the Baptist church, Seafield Rd.

To mark these events and the importance of peace a Peace Tree is being planted near the Red Stables, in St Anne’s Park, Clontarf at 11.00am on Friday 29 September 2017.

The Norwegian Armed Forces are being represented by the Brass Quintet of the Royal Norwegian Navy Band along with their Director Commander Terje Gravningsmyhr. The Norwegian Embassy in Ireland supports the project.  A representative of the Irish Defence Forces will read poetry, in solidarity with those who died in battle.

The internationally renowned classical guitarist, John Feeley, will play a number of pieces including one of his famous Bach arrangements.  Aimee Farrell Courtney, the most important Bodhrán player of her generation, will also play at the event.

Tickets are €15 and can be purchased by phoning 8334606 (Clontarf Road) & 087 9091561 (Seafield Road)
