  1. “1971 was also the year that a concert was organised to raise funds to send local people on a trip to Lourdes. The concert, while featuring all the local talent was spearheaded by a five year Boy Wonder, a singing sensation from Kilcullen named Michael Landers.

    Riding high in the charts with a number entitled, “If I Could Be a Sailor Man” he became the youngest recording artist in the world making his first record before making his First Communion. He was managed by a young Edenderry man Kevin Farrell, who, fortunately for the Lourdes Committee was involved in the organising of the concert.”
