Ireland’s Premier Entertainer, Tony Kenny, takes you home for Christmas home to his beloved Emerald Isle, home to celebrate the Holy Season!

by the hearth, favorite Christmas songs and hymns, laughter as everyone gathers for a
sampling of Irish wit and wisdom, and the joyfulness of youthful dancing in celebration
of the holidays, then allow Tony Kenny, Ireland’s Premier Entertainer, and his all-star
cast to take you there.
Tony Kenny is an icon in the world of Irish music, receiving dozens of awards for his

This multi-talented, award-winning performer has done it again! Introducing some of
Ireland’s finest performers, Tony Kenny’s Christmastime in Ireland brings such

Ireland’s King of Blarney, George Casey’s, self-deprecating humor, tempered with his
Irish brogue, have won over audiences across the country. Casey’s humor is always in
good fun. George relates well with people, is a good communicator and keen observer of human nature. With his disarming smile and likable personality, he reaches out
and involves the entire crowd! George can charm the habit off a nun and put a smile
on the face of even the most politically correct audience.
