A Feast of Music and Song at the Edel Quinn Hall, Kanturk – Fri. 12th Aug.

A feast of Music and Song will be on offer at the Edel Quinn Hall in Kanturk on Friday, August 12th when no less than ten Bands will take to the stage to perform in a fundraiser for Kanturk and Millstreet Community Hospitals.

Knocknagree’s John Joe Herlihy has once again stepped up the plate in organising the Show, and he is hoping that a huge crowd will turn up to support this worthwhile event.

Margaret Collins, (recently appointed Director of Nursing at Millstreet Community Hospital), speaking to the Corkman said that the people of Millstreet and surrounding areas are always brilliant to fundraise for the Hospital; “We are thrilled to be benefiting from this great night of Music and Dancing, and we will use the money to refurbish the laundry, as well as revamping the gardens” Margaret said.

Joan Collins who is a Clinical Nurse Manager 2 at Kanturk Community Hospital spoke on behalf of Director of Nursing Peig Fitzgerald who was on holiday. “We hope we can continue to offer the great services of our hospital to the local people” Joan said, “fundraisers like this are very much appreciated and offers us the opportunity to upgrade our facilities and equipment for the comfort of the patients” Joan added.

Artists appearing on the night include Mary Desmond, Noel Cronin, Sheila Fitzgerald & Mike Sheehan, Jer Healy (The Singing Jarvey), O’ Brien & Shine Band, Laura Dunlea, Mike McCarthy, Peter Lane, Barry O’ Halloran, and Pat Whelan.

All the musicians are giving their services free of charge.

Doors Open 8pm
Dancing from 8.30pm – 12.30pm
