Sabrina McKiernan from Tralee recently released her debut CD to raise money for Irish guide dogs. She qualified with her first guide dog Ned when she was eighteen years old, and says that deciding to train with a guide dog was the best decision she has ever made in her life.
O.J and I met Sabrina in Cork in February 09, when she was working with her second dog Ella. During the summer, apart from being busy putting her album together, Sabrina trained with her third dog, a labradoodle named Vaz.
She has always enjoyed singing, and chose songs for the CD that meant something special to her or someone in her family. The Cd contains twelve tracks that people know well, such as ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’, ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘Danny Boy’ and the title track – ‘I Can See Clearly Now’. There are no backing tracks on the Cd, musicians – Aine Murray, Alfie Curtin, Billy Curtin, Jimmy Canty, Ger Hurley and John Curtin all recorded live with Sabrina.
You can purchase a copy of the CD for ten euros from the guide dogs website
I’m just waiting for mine in the post.
