The choir focuses on a repertoire of popular music with a firm emphasis on singing for fun. The choir also aims to foster a community spirit and social interaction among members and to promote well-being through the enjoyment of singing.

Rehearsals take place on a weekly basis with full concert performances several times each year. In 2017, the choir made its first overseas trip, taking part in the North Wales Choral Festival. Apart from the entertainment factor, concert performances are undertaken as fundraising events. To the end of 2018 the choir has raised €50,000 for various charities.
