Abba Forever was formed and is lead by Dennis Scally, a London born musician who has been at the top of the music game for many years.

For 13 years, while based in Los Angles, he was the musical director for The Supremes and toured the world with them. He moved back to Europe 14 years ago and formed ABBA FOREVER.

 A virtuoso keyboard player, he really shines at all the great ABBA keyboard parts.

Lead Guitar is Rae Daniel, also from London. Rae has played with various bands and shows down through the years including the London “Mamma Mia” Show.

A feature of the ABBA FOREVER show is Dennis and Rae swapping lightening fast, guitar and keyboard licks, live on stage.

On lead vocals are Lucinda O’Connell and Marie O’Hara. Both girls came through their school and teenage lives starring in Musicals. Lucinda starred in “Jesus Christ Superstar” as Mary Madeline and Marie appeared in touring productions of “Grease” “Phantom of the Opera” and lots more.

You will not hear better ABBA Voice anywhere. Both girls have Irish family connections and love touring here to catch up with relatives!

Info on our Air Handling Units

  • Air Handling Unit info: Our auditoriums are standalone sealed rooms when all doors are closed. A Minstral Air, Air Handling Unit is dedicated to each room. AHUs have the capability for heating or cooling the auditoriums. AHUs also have the capacity to continually exchange 100 % fresh air in the auditoriums to comply with COVID-19 REHVA regulations. The Building Management System (BMS) that controls the AHUs is programmed to supply 100% fresh air into the room and extract 100% air from the room before, during and after the room is occupied by an audience, staff or performers. The Air Handling Units dampers are closed to prevent any " recycling " of air in the auditorium. The BMS is monitored regularly checked for compliance by DCU Estates and The Helix.
