Kiera Dignam took to the stage solo for the first time since the passing of her father, Christy Dignam.

She performed at Forest Fest on Sunday night as the festival came to a close.

The singer paid tribute to her father as she finished her set by performing one of his songs.

She finished her set with an emotional rendition of Aslan’s Crazy World – a song Christy said he was inspired to write as he held baby Kiera in his arms moments after she was born.

It was certainly an emotional moment for Kiera.

Earlier this weekend, Kiera joined Imelda May on stage for her performance at the Iveagh Gardens.

“What a night onstage with Imelda May in the Iveagh Gardens,” she wrote as she shared a video of her performing.

Christy passed away earlier this month after living with a rare blood disease, amyloidosis, a disorder which leads to the protein amyloid building up in the organs.

The singer also developed multiple myeloma, a type of bone marrow cancer.

Kiera shared a beautiful video thanking those who paid respect to her father.

She also wanted to thank everyone for the cards, messages, sandwiches and stories about her father.

“I just wanted to thank you for the support we’ve been shown over the last week and a half. For the cards, messages, stories, and sandwiches, and time people have given us,” she said in the video.
