Artists sing the praises of com­mu­nity hos­pi­tals



THE su­perb ser­vice pro­vided by both Kan­turk and Millstreet Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tals to the el­derly pop­u­la­tion of Duhal­low is in a class of its own and on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 13, or­gan­is­ers hope that a mu­si­cal fundraiser to sup­port both hos­pi­tals will see a ca­pac­ity au­di­ence turn out at the Edel Quinn Hall in Kan­turk.

Or­gan­ised by Knock­na­gree auc­tion­eer and val­uer John Joe Herlihy, the event will see seven well known bands take to the stage with the hugely pop­u­lar West Lim­er­ick 102FM pre­sen­ter Benny McCarthy act­ing as com­pere for the evening.

En­ter­tain­ers tak­ing part in­clude Mike Con­don, Sheila Fitzger­ald and Mike Shee­han, Heather Sound, No­rah Hickey, De­nis and Christy of the Ma­rina Band, Noreen Ashe, and Noel Cronin.

In ad­di­tion, a DVD which was recorded at last year’s fundraiser will be launched on the night. Artists fea­tured on this pro­duc­tion are Noel Cronin, Mary Des­mond, Pat Whe­lan and Tommy Lawler, Laura Dun­lea, Sheila Fitzger­ald and Mike Shee­han, Peter Lane, Barry O’Hal­lo­ran, Billy O’Brien and Philip Shine, Mike McCarthy, Ger Healy (The Jar­vey).

The mu­si­cians en­ter­tained free of charge at the ini­tial fundraiser last year, as will those who are tak­ing part in the forth­com­ing event. In ad­di­tion, per­son­nel at Old Road Stu­dios, Bal­ly­desmond, recorded, edited and pro­duced the DVD free of charge and all pro­ceeds from sales will go di­rectly to both hos­pi­tals.

There will be a ‘mon­ster raf­fle’ on the night and the event kicks off at 8.30pm sharp. Fol­low on Face­book at Kan­turk & Millstreet Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tals.
