Musical night for hospitals
THE superb service provided by both Kanturk and Millstreet Community Hospitals to the elderly population of Duhallow is in a class of it’s own, and this Friday, October 13 organisers hope that a musical fundraiser, led by Kerry and Cork musicians, will see a capacity audience at the Edel Quinn Hall Kanturk to support both hospitals.
Organised by Knocknagree Auctioneer and Valuer John Joe Herlihy, the event will see seven well known bands take to the stage with West Limerick 102FM Presenter Benny McCarthy 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. It all kicks off at 8.30pm.
