The new album from Shaun Davey, featuring the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and an array of top Irish artists. The album takes its name from the anthem specially composed for the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics World Summer Games in 2003.

'May We Never Have To Say Goodbye', released by Tara Music in association with RTÉ, is a collaboration between Shaun Davey, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the featured artists. The album takes its name from the anthem specially composed for the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Croke Park, June 2003. Performed by Rita Connolly , Ronan Tynan and no less than six Dublin choirs, this song originally topped the Irish singles charts for 5 weeks. It is presented here with the rest of the music from Shaun Davey's unique and exhilarating suite for that occasion, featuring traditional soloists, singers, choir, pipeband, percussion and orchestra, and includes Noel Eccles's spectacular percussion score, 'The Arrival of the Flag'.

In addition to the orchestra, pipeband and six choirs, the album features a host of familiar names with Liam O'Flynn on uillean pipes and whistle, Nollaig Casey on fiddle and The Voice Squad providing some of the chorus vocals.
