The Song of Peace Final takes place at 6:30 pm on Thursday July 10th at the Aherlow House Hotel in the Glen of Aherlow, Tipperary.

The Tipperary Convention and Song Award was founded in 1984. It was set up to recognise people who promote the ideals of peace and peaceful co-operation in Ireland and across the world. It also aimed to replace the association of Tipperary with war in popular culture based in part on the popularity of the first world war recruiting song “It’s a long way to Tipperary”.

Singer Songwriter John Munnelly born and grew up in Cavan town.  John’s talent for telling the story of the common man has been recognized. He’s an award winning songwriter with the ASCAP Jay Gorney award for a “Song With a Social Conscience” called The Unemployment Blues.

John Munnelly is also known for penning anthemic football themed songs and is currently involved in the local Dublin football flavoured ‘King of Cambridge’ project. He was invited to create the melody for the existing song lyrics and then went on to produce both the song and the subsequent video. The song has been described as “I can’t get this song out of my head”  by numerous listeners. He will be participating in events & shows linked to this ‘King of Cambridge’ project after the Tipperary Song of Peace Final.  Link to King of Cambridge video & song
