Lion Sean Olohan, who composed a song Lions International from Wicklow says the only way to describe his trip to Las Vegas last week is ‘totally unbelievable and extremely spectactular’.
Sean who has performed to big audiences throughout Europe during his musical career but nothing
comes even close to singing to an audience of 15,000 in one of the biggest venues in the world.
Sean said ‘When I saw the venue for the first time I was shocked at the size of it’. After he and his wife Jackie who played piano and sang backing vocals rehearsed, he felt much more comfortable in the gigantic arena. They were very fortunate to have the support of DG Frank O’Donoghue and his wife Elaine. Frank took time off from his very busy schedule to come along to the rehearsal and give some Irish encouragement .
Sean spoke to the huge audience before his performance on stage on how proud he was to be a Lion from Ireland and brought greetings from all Irish Lions. He thanked the new President for giving him the opportunity to write a song for her and was delighted that it was received with such enthusiasm.
‘Sing with the Lions’ has received 3000 views in less than a week on YouTube. ‘Please share it as much as possible and spread the Lionism word in song from Co.Wicklow and Ireland worldwide’ says Sean.
