Killererin has been blessed with very talented singers down through the years and in 2004, when it was decided to set up a Benevolent Fund in the parish, John P. Keane who was a member of the committee at the time, offered to produce a CD of local talent.

The CD was very well received and all vocalists gave their services for free.  The CD contains the following songs:
