It was at St. MacNissi's College, County Antrim, a local school in Derry, where Father Eugene O'Hagan, Father Martin O'Hagan and Father David Delargy met for the first time and realized their musical prowess as a singing trio. Nicknamed Holy Holy Holy by their peers due to their shared determination to enter the priesthood, it was a priest at their school who first noticed how talented they actually were.
After leaving St. MacNissi's, they followed their vocation training at The Seminary in Belfast, where Fr. Eugene specialized in English and Scholastic Philosophy and Fr. Martin and Fr. David specialized in Ancient History and Scholastic Philosophy. During that time they all studied under the Belfast based singing teacher Mr. Frank Capper MBE.
The Priests concluded their training at the revered Irish College in Rome where Fr. Eugene studied for 7 years, Fr. Martin for 5 years and Fr. David for 4 years.
While in Rome, Eugene took advantage of the fact that he was able to have singing lessons from the famous Sergio Ballani, official music director for the Vatican. Almost immediately their combined and rare talent was recognized. They were invited in person by the Pope's private secretary, Monsignor Magee (the Papal Master of Ceremonies) to sing for the Pope in the sacred liturgy.
The Priests' careers overlapped once again as they all eventually returned to Ireland, where they began their work in various special ministries. Each now lives the life of a full time Parish Priest, tending the spiritual needs of their parishioners and official duties at all church services including those to mark the christenings, marriages and funerals of members of their Catholic community.
The outpouring of coverage and support from major media outlets such as Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, PBS, CBS Sunday Morning, CBS Early Show, NBC Nightly News, Regis & Kelly, EWTN and many major Catholic & Irish portals has shown that the world is ready to embrace something positive and beautiful in these difficult and challenging times.
