A Musical Night for Bumbleance and Diabetes Ireland

Former Bunratty Castle Entertainers are joining forces for a variety charity concert in aid of the Clare branch of Diabetes Ireland and BUMBLEance at the Hotel Woodstock, Ennis on Saturday November 18.

Performers include: El Divas, Maretta O’Hehir, Quin n Tonic, Forever Young Singers, Scoil Rinnce Staic, Burren Trio, Emer O’ Flaherty, Sinead Toomey, Valerie Ryder-O’Hanlon, Andrea Sheahan, Edel Heaney. The concert will be produced and compered by Noel Murphy, with piano accompaniment by Michael Hennessy.

“It was reasonably easy because of great support from the positivity of the performers. Most of the performers are professional and are giving their services free and all proceeds will be divided equally between the two charities,” said organiser Aidan White.

This event is organised by Aidan White, who lives in Shannon and has been a member of the Clare Diabetes Support group since he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He worked for 42 years in the hotel and catering business in many different hotels, including 17 years in Bunratty and Knappogue Castles.

Diabetes Ireland is the only national charity that is dedicated to helping people with diabetes and the local Clare branch provides diabetes support and information at monthly meetings.

BUMBLEance is a children’s ambulance service that delivers sick children between home and the national treatment centres, hospice and respite centres nationwide.

“These are very worthwhile causes and I can guarantee an evening of quality, fun and craic. Tickets at €15 are very reasonable and since there are only 250 seats, early purchase of tickets is essential. There will be the customary raffle and there are some marvellous prizes,” added Aidan.

When: Saturday 18th November at 8pm

Where: Hotel Woodstock, Ennis, Co. Clare

Admission €15 per person.
