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”
