Our last charity concert took place on the 19th December at McHughs venue in Drogheda. 

This unique evening of music showcased some of the best new traditional Irish music bands of the County Louth including Zoe Conway + John Mc IntyreRapscallion BalladBand and Sirmione.

Thank you to people who came and enjoyed this great night of live music and thank you to the bands who made this event real!

On October 4th 2013 “The Singer & The Song” was organised in the Droichead Arts Centre by the pianist and director of St Peter’s Male Voice Choir Edward Holly. Those who performed were an eclectic mix of incredible local talent, featuring Katy Anna Mohan, Sharon Gaynor, Alan Hynes, Amy Judge, Miguel Kaguako, Own Lynch, Claire Regan, Aidan Roche, Sean Tester, Cecil Whitty and Edward Holly. All of the performers very kindly gave all of their time completely free of charge.

In response to Drogheda Homeless Aid's food appeal Edward Holly involved a very unique idea, incorporating food donations as part of the admission fee. The result was unprecedented, with substantial food donations gratefully received by Drogheda Homeless Aid staff on the night, as well as over €1,000 in cash and supermarket voucher donations.
