Magic Num­bers in Trim to­day!

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Weekly Guide To Entertainment Friday 04.12.2009 -

Trim, Co Meath hosts an un­likely gath­er­ing to­day when Min­is­ter for Trans­port Noel Dempsey, econ­o­mist David McWil­liams and UK-based band The Magic Num­bers con­verge on the town’s GAA cen­tre for the launch of Trim 2025, a scheme that hopes to make the town car­bon-neu­tral in the next 15 years.

The event – it­self car­bon-neu­tral, of course – kicks off at 3.30pm, with a talk from McWil­liams. Later in the evening the en­ter­tain­ment will be pro­vided by acts in­clud­ing Kells na­tives Ham Sand­wich and a head­line set by The Magic Num­bers, who are in Ire­land to film the Other Voices se­ries in Din­gle, Co Kerry on Sun­day.

Or­gan­iser Martin Tighe said he was thrilled that such a high-pro­file act were do­nat­ing their time and waiv­ing their fee for such an im­por­tant cause.

“We’re a loosely-knit group of vol­un­teers who just want to burst our way out of un­cer­tainty and cur­rent gloom by mak­ing good things hap­pen,” he said. “The Magic Num­bers in Trim? Even Ham Sand­wich is a coup!”

A num­ber of tick­ets are still avail­able from Tick­ now.
