Country stars support the people of Inishowen

Donegal native Daniel O’Donnell has made a pledge to help the people on the Inishowen peninsula whose lives have been devastated by the torrential rain of last week which has displaced many locals from their homes and livelihood.

During his current sold-out Irish tour Daniel saw the turmoil in Donegal unfold on TV news and immediately responded to a call from local woman Deirdre Grant who was putting together a fundraising event.

A few phone calls later and the true spirit of country music was revealed as a line-up of stars emerged for “Flood Aid for Inishowen”. Daniel will be joined on stage by Declan Nearney, Johnny Brady, Dominic and Barry Kirwan, and Nathan Carter with the house band.

The highly anticipated event takes place in the Aura Centre in Letterkenny next Sunday, September 3rd  at 3pm.

Well known Donegal personality Noel Cunningham will host the show ably assisted by Phil Mack from the Keep it Country Music Channel. Phil has family in Inishowen so decided to fly over to give any help he can.

Tickets cost €30 and are on sale through local outlets and at the Aura Centre.
