Reclaim your Sunday evenings with Down in the City: An Alternative Sunday Service, a series of three events taking place in The Sugar Club, Dublin in April, May and June. Curated by national treasures Scullion – Sonny Condell, Philip King and Robbie Overson - each evening will bring together some of Ireland’s most exciting musicians, writers and singers for a Sunday Service like no other. Inspirational readings, uplifting music, irreverent banter and powerful songs, guaranteed to banish the dreaded Sunday fear and re-energise the congregation for the week ahead. Artists, poets and writers that are set to join Scullion include Iarla Ó Lionáird, Saint Sister, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Ye Vagabonds, Paula Meehan and Joseph O’Connor, with more performers to be announced.

Continuing Down in the City: An Alternative Sunday Service on Sunday May 20th, Scullion welcome the ethereal, pop-folk accents of Saint Sister. One of Ireland’s most exciting emerging acts, their combination of harmonies, synth and harp create a truly unique and mesmerising soundscape. Multi-award winning Irish writer Joseph O’Connor will provide a literary escape for the evening, reading excepts from many best loved works and presenting new writings. Joseph is one of Ireland’s most acclaimed literary and creative figures. His book Star of the Sea is an international bestseller and has been published in 38 languages.
