Limerick Jazz Festival is proud to present ‘The Eternal Flame’, an ambitious collaboration between a range of local, national, and international artists. 

Eternal Flame is a show of two halves. First up, Arranger David O’Rourke highlights the wonderful vocal talents of Muireann NicAmhlaoibh who will be joined by Conor Ryan, Suzanne Savage and Paul Jost. The second half will premiere brand new compositions by David O’Rourke based on the play Bread Not Profits written by Limerick man Mike Finn.

Limerick Jazz Festival are delighted to present The Eternal Flame arranger David O’Rourke from Malahide, Dublin. He has been resident in the US since 1989 and since then has arranged and played with some of the best jazz musicians on the US scene. His great arrangements will highlight the wonderful vocal talents of our four performers.

This Limerick Jazz show will feature Limerick Jazz International Big Band, Ancór Chamber Choir, Mike Finn, and colleagues will narrate excerpts. There will also be video footage, a reminder of a truly amazing two weeks in the history of Limerick and its fight against British Militarism . We are very excited about this hugely challenging project and really looking forward to seeing it all come to fruition. 

The Eternal Flame recounts the events that took place after martial law was proclaimed in April 1919, ending in workers capturing the city in protest. This period in Limerick’s history evolved out of necessity as a reaction to British Militarism.
