Castlebar Special Olympics Host Town committee have produced a CD celebrating the theme of Special Olympics World Summer Games 2003…Share the feeling!
The CD is entitled Share the feeling…sing the feeling! and is comprised of 3 tracks, 2 of which are by Castlebar based musical groups-Castlebar Gospel Choir and the Mayo County Choir
The 1st track ‘Amigo Mor, My Friend’ was specially written for the Special Olympics by Michael O’ Dowd, a member of Ballinasloe Host Town committee.
It is sung by Christine Patterson whom people will remember as a member of the Donegal folk group ‘The Pattersons’ Pupils from St Angela’s NS, St Patrick’s BNS, St Anthony’s SS, Scoil Raifteiri and Breaffy NS will perform this song on Monday June 16th as part of the celebrations to welcome the Final Leg Torch Run to Castlebar.

The CDs were assembled by trainees of the NTDI, Breaffy Rd, Castlebar.
