Appearance of Shandrum Céilí Band on this Friday’s “Late Late Show” Now Deferred to a Later Date

We have heard from Rosario Buckley who is Alan Finn’s Official Publicist. Rosario officially confirmed the fact that the Shandrum Céilí Band‘s appearance on the “Late Late Show” is deferred to a later date due to  Coronavirus COVID-19.

An important update regarding the original post below:

Due to the Taoiseach’s Announcement today there will be no live acts on this Friday’s “Late Late Show”.   The Shandrum Céilí Band’s appearance has been deferred to a later date.

Thus the following original feature regarding the “Late Late Show” appearance of the Band does not apply now:  The Shandrum Céilí Band are due to feature on this Friday night’s “Late Late Show”(13th March 2020) on RTÉ 1.  They were due to be part of the Show originally scheduled to have been broadcast from Limerick but have been invited to Dublin now that the Show from Limerick has been cancelled due to Covid-19 Coronavirus.   Also the Fundraising Concert that they were due to play at in Kiskeam this Sunday night (15th March) at 7pm for the Kiskeam Playground Development has been cancelled and will be re-scheduled for a later date.    In light of the recent public health threat, it is with great regret that we have decided to postpone our Fundraising Concert. All tickets sold will be honoured for the rescheduled date. Any queries contact ticket sellers.    We thank Anne Goggin for this important notice.  (S.R.)

Music for Marie: The Shandrum Céilí Band in Concert This Sunday at 8pm in Knocknagree Church

A night of celebration and remembrance for Marie Collins who passed away in January 2018 will take place on the August Bank Holiday Sunday (4th) in Knocknagree Church, Co. Cork and all proceeds are going to Sudden Adult Death Ireland. In store for those in attendance is an evening of traditional music, song and dance hosted by Three-in-a-row All-Ireland Champions, The Shandrum Céilí Band.

Concert organiser Timmy Collins said: My mom, Marie, has been described as a pillar of the community and was adored by many. Originally from Knocknagree, she married my Dad, Danny, in 1992 and made the big move to Doon, Kiskeam. She loved music and bestowed upon me, more so than anyone else, my love and loyalty for Sliabh Luachra music. I also got my skill for organisation and social media from her, long before she set up her business DigiPulse Marketing. We will remember and celebrate her at this very special event – Ní hé líon na bport, ach feabhas an cheoil.  [read more …] “Music for Marie: The Shandrum Céilí Band in Concert This Sunday at 8pm in Knocknagree Church”
