Step back to the ‘90s and it’s all for a good cause

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

IF Brit Pop tunes from Blur and Oa­sis took your fancy back in the day then you might want to pen­cil in McSor­leys Bar on Satur­day, Novem­ber 18 at 9:30pm to your diary as a special ‘Back to the ‘90s’ event takes place with DJs Jim and Kev play­ing mu­sic from a glo­ri­ous decade.

Noth­ing beats a bit of mu­si­cal nos­tal­gia once you hit your 30s and 40s and don’t worry, it’s not a fancy dress so all you need do is turn up and en­joy the mu­sic and chat about the dis­tant days when bell bot­tom jeans and psy­che­delic t-shirts were all the go.

Pro­ceeds from the night go to Cys­tic Fi­broses Ire­land and the idea for this has a deeply per­sonal story at­tached as it was de­cided it would make an ideal trib­ute to close friend Patrick McS­par­ron who died of CF 20 years ago.

“Patrick died in Novem­ber 1997 aged 19 and we just thought on his an­niver­sary it would be nice to re­mem­ber him in this way. Patrick was a big Manch­ester United fan and I re­call we all wore United jer­seys on the day he was buried,” said Pa­tri­cia McCarthy.

Tick­ets are €10 and sev­eral spot prizes will be avail­able on the night. Tick­ets are on sale from lo­cal out­lets Who’s 4 Shoes on High St., Carry Out Muck­ross Rd, and Carry Out at Tralee Rd. Tick­ets will also be avail­able at the door on the night.

Launch­ing ‘Back to the 90s’ which will be held this Satur­day, are are James Mur­phy, Kevin O’Sul­li­van, Pa­tri­cia McCarthy and John Cronin. Pro­ceeds from the night will go to CF Ire­land.
