Host of Ir­ish stars go­ing to the dogs

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS - By Lauren Mur­phy

A new dog-themed char­ity al­bum fea­tur­ing Cathy Davey, Neil Han­non, David Gray, Lisa Han­ni­gan duet­ting with Gra­ham Line­han, Vil­lagers, Lisa O'Neill, Sharon Shan­non, mu­si­cal comedian David O’Do­herty and many more will be re­leased next month.

Os­car the Hypno-Dog (and Other Tails) is the brain­child of Davey and Han­non, whose love of dogs – and pa­tron­age of the Dogs in Dis­tress char­ity – in­spired them to gather to­gether a group of friends to record an al­bum. All money raised from the al­bum sales will be do­nated to Dogs in Dis­tress, which does not cur­rently have a phys­i­cal shel­ter and re­lies on a net­work of fos­ter­ers to look af­ter their an­i­mals. Song ti­tles on the 15-track al­bum in­clude Casey the Won­der Dog, Dog Baby and One Rea­son to Get a Dog.

Harry Haller and the Hooli­gans, a su­per­group com­pris­ing many of the al­bum’s fea­tured mu­si­cians, re­cently per­formed on The Late Late Show. The al­bum will be re­leased on Davey’s own Ham­mer­toe Records on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 7th. See dogsindis­tress.org
