One week since its launch, The Irish Blessing has received 450,000 views on YouTube and has featured today, Trinity Sunday, in a variety of Services and programmes around the world.
In York Minster, Archbishop John Sentamu accompanied by his wife, the Revd Margaret Sentamu, laid down his crozier of office on the high altar, with The Irish Blessing playing as he did so. Dr Sentamu requested the piece for his last act after 15 years as Archbishop, because his favourite hymn is ‘Be Thou My Vision.’
On Premiere Radio and BBC Radio Ulster today, The Irish Blessing received special features, with the presenters of ‘Kintra’ saying the song is, “really moving…it’s hard not to get the goosebumps.”
The Irish Blessing also featured across a wide range of denominations in a number of online Services from Cork, to Cavan to Armagh.
The Irish Blessing team wishes to extend deepest thanks to all who have offered such generous support and encouragement and to extend all glory to God for His abundant and faithful blessings.
