Ciarán Dunphy and Seamus Reade talk all things KMS, AIMS, Dev and Michael Collins with Sue Nunn on KCLR's "The Sue Nun Show", Monday 16th June 2014.

It would seem that Kilkenny can now boast a new All-Ireland title. At its annual national awards held in Killarney last weekend, the Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS), Kilkenny Musical Society were the proud recipient of four awards. These awards were adjudicated against all other societies in the country and represent a phenomenal achievement for this local group of performers.

It has been a very busy and exciting year for KMS!

Following last year’s AGM on May 30th 2013, the new committee held their first meeting on June 4th. Seamus welcomed our new committee members.

Our show for 2014 was selected at our first meeting on June 4th, ‘Michael Collins – A Musical Drama’.
Over the coming weeks, our production team was selected to feature Christine Scarry as director, Patrick Clancy as musical director and Gemma Grant as choreographer. The committee revealed this information to society members on July 5th in Rafter Dempsey’s pub. An information night was held on September 13th in O’Faolain’s. Auditions were held two weeks later.
