Music teacher Ron Cooney has been working in the Republic of Ireland’s only high-rise housing estate for 15 years. During this time he has seen the area undergo a dramatic transformation, including the demolition of six of its seven tower blocks. The young people of Ballymun have an extraordinary story to tell, and Ron spends a year of his life curating a collection of music that gives voice to their story. A dynamic, funny, and driven man, despite his own health problems, what Ron and his students have achieved is simply amazing.
