Queen's honours singing priests

The Priests
The Priests are all graduates of Queen's University

Northern Ireland's chart-topping singing priests are to be honoured at Queen's University in Belfast later.

The trio, who have sold millions of albums worldwide, will receive the university's graduate of the year award.

Fathers Eugene and Martin O'Hagan and Father David Delargy previously graduated from the university.

Their first album The Priests, spent 13 weeks at number one and was the fastest selling debut classical album ever.

It was recorded last year with the Philharmonic Academy of Rome from St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.
