I have only recently discovered these three wonderful Irish tenors, and I am gobsmacked. They are Catholic priests with voices like angels. I watched the PBS program of their performance at Armagh Cathedral, and I loved them. These wonderful singers have even been on Regis and Kelly, for goodness sake. Where have I been? They are practicing priests in Northern Ireland, and they have been singing together since they were students at students at St MacNissi's College. Two of them are brothers.

• Father Martin O’Hagan is Parish Priest of the Parish of Cushendun with two churches: The Church of St. Patrick (Craigagh) and the Church of St. Mary, The Star of the Sea (Culraney), Diocese of Down and Connor.

They have recorded one CD which was released in November 2008, and it made the Guinness Book of World Records for the fastest-selling UK debut for a classical act. Quelle surprise! They are wonderful. Their music is mostly classical and Irish ballads – you should hear them sing “Funiculì, Funiculà” and “Danny Boy” -- but they also sing other music as well, and are listed as “alternative rock”. I like that. These priests rock. And what beautiful voices they have. Here they are singing the "Irish Blessings".
