Gaelic Voices For Change Raise €3,090 for the Cork Simon Community | 16/12/2017
On the night of the 16th of December, volunteers for Gaelic Voices For Change, formed by the Gaelic Players Association, organised sleep-ins in public locations around Ireland to raise funds and awareness for the deepening homelessness crisis. On the steps of the courthouse on Washington Street, €3,090 was raised for the Cork Simon Community. Irish Radio International chatted to Ronan Conway and Sarah Houlihan about their efforts.
The members of GVFC and the GPA and WGPAset a great example for us all this Christmas. If you would like to support Gaelic Voices For Change in their efforts and make a donation, please visit - https://www.gaelicvoicesforchange.com/ Any and all support is greatly appreciated.
Christina May, Síofra & Laura Mulcahy @ The Friary, August 2017 | IRI Monthly Music Showcase
The final event of its run, August’s Monthly Music Showcase took a more intimate, stripped back setting following the Poor Relation event in July; this time, we went upstairs at The Friary on Shandon Street, at the bottom of the hill where our little station is located. The Friary is a great source of off-the-beaten-path music and entertainment thanks to Mike and Élise, the latter of whom has since moved on to newer pastures; everyone here at IRI is very grateful for their hosting on the night.
