Mayo album launch to support childhood cancer charities
The launch of a new 10-track album, Chongie Road, by Achill musician Séan Lynch is set to take place at the Wavecrest Hotel, Dooagh, Achill, on Saturday, September 23.
This unforgettable evening promises an exhilarating fusion of music, community and charity as local and visiting talent come together to support a major charity fundraising drive.
The event will be an immersive musical experience, featuring captivating live performances by local uileann piper Seán Lynch and special guests as well as some of Achill's most talented musicians, including The Achill Lads, Bríd McLoughlin and Aoife Fadian. Guests can expect a night filled with foot-tapping tunes, ballads and an atmosphere that celebrates the vibrant musical culture of the island.
Doors open at 7.30 p.m. for the Ireland v South Africa Rugby World Cup match on the big screen, with the concert beginning directly afterwards. Tickets for the launch can be purchased in outlets across Achill for just €10 and a limited number will be available on the door.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and it serves as a poignant reminder of the challenges faced by young cancer patients and their families. The album launch will also mark the launch of a major fundraising initiative that aims to make a meaningful impact in the lives of these children and their caregivers by supporting three worthy charitable causes: St. John's Ward, Crumlin; Aoibheann's Pink Tie; and local charity Gearóid's Smile.
