The Young Orchestral Pops  (YOPS Orchestra) was set up in 2002 under the direction of Ms. Kitty Dalligan.


The orchestra's repertoire is varied including Film, Popular, Irish and well known Classics and the orchestra has performed to great acclaim both at home and abroad. Our 2010-2012 season saw significant performances in Ireland, Paris and in EuroDisney Paris.


Our 2013 tour to Italy was a real musical adventure with well-received performances in churches and schools in the Lake Garda and the Verona regions and the 2013-2014 season promises other occasions to catch the orchestra in performance.



Congratulations to Kitty

who was presented with the Agnes O’Kane Award

by Philip O’Kane for her work

in contributing significantly to the development

of young musicians and youth orchestras in Ireland (more).
