THERE’S JUST one hour to go until the Irish Post’s virtual Irish Country & Folk Festival kicks off live on Facebook in aid of Mental Health Ireland.
One thing lockdown has undoubtedly done is help bring us all closer together, with people looking out for one another more than ever before and everyone doing their bit for communities local and online.
To help do our part, The Irish Post has organised for a whole host of talented Irish performers to come together for a virtual festival raising funds for an important cause.
Since its inception in 1966, Mental Health Since has been promoting positive mental health and wellbeing for all individuals and communities.
As a charity it strives to support people with lived experience of mental health challenges through their recovery, bringing practical expression to national policy objectives.
Mental Health Ireland is looking to a future where it will lead the way in informing Irish society’s understanding of mental health and fostering a culture where people with mental health difficulties are respected and supported – but it needs all our support.
So, join us on The Irish Post Facebook page (here) tonight at 7pm BST for a night of comedy, ceol agus craic from our star-studded line-up, which will include performances by:
Aslan, Daniel O'Donnell, Ash, Rory Best, Michael Flatley, Lisa Canny, The O'Neill Sisters, Sharon Shannon, Dublin City Today, Derek Ryan, The Byrne Brothers, Megan O'Neill, All Folk'd Up, Cliona Hagan, Malachi Cush, Owen Mac, Dan McCabe, David Geaney, Sir Stevo Timothy, Fusion Fighters and the Gardiner Brothers.
The virtual summer festival will be broadcast live from our Facebook page with the aim of raising awareness and funds for the essential charity while also having a bit of classic Irish craic.
