A new single was launched yesterday to coincide with the Easter Rising 90th anniversary commemoration.
The Daughter of Connolly song will appear on the soundtrack of a future film based on socialist revolutionary James Connolly’s life.
Members of Mr Connolly’s family were present yesterday at the launch of the new single, which is performed by the four-piece female act Pzazz.
Pzazz are four young Irish sopranos – Fiona McManus, Claire Halligan, Mary Frances Loughran, Aoife Nic Ardghail.
They have been together for just under a year. Their first album will be released later this year.
The new feature-length biopic on the life of James Connolly should begin shooting in the early autumn period. Frank Allen, co-writer of the screenplay for Connolly said 60 per cent of funding had been raised.
A talk on the life of James Connolly will take place in west Belfast tomorrow. The talk – Was Connolly a Nationalist or Revolutionary Socialist? – will be held at the Cultúrlann at 7.30pm.
