RNLI Fundraiser – The Irish Fivers are coming to Cork on March 4th to help RNLI raise much needed funds.
The Irish Fivers began as a very casual singsong meeting up of North Clare friends Padraig, Peter and John in O’Loghlins Whiskey Bar, Ballyvaughan village in 2015. They were spotted in 2017 by the Clare RNLI Fundraising supremo, Joe Quelly, who twisted their arms to record a cd for RNLI. The Irish Fivers armed with their “Singsong Favourites” cd are on now a mission to promote Old Style Singsong Pub Nights and raise funds for the RNLI Lifeboats with their “2018 World Tour of Clare and Other Interesting Places”.
Their singsong nights are regularly enjoyed by young and old patrons, locals and visitors alike at O’Lochlainn’s. There’s is not a stage act – instead The Fivers sit with patrons encouraging them to sing along with their acoustic programme of early pop classics and Irish ballads. On a good night, for example last month in the East Clare village of Feakle, up to 16 patrons contributed their own party pieces plus visiting musician friends- all part of the night’s fun and raised €500 with the house raffle and CD sales for RNLI!
The Irish Fivers have linked up with RNLI in Cork and are bringing their fundraising party night to The Blackrock Inn, Mahon Golf Course on Sunday March 4th. Sunday night is singsong time at The Blackrock Inn, so with a 7.30pm start it should make for an enjoyable evening and profitable for RNLI in Cork.
To date the Irish Fivers project has raised €8,800 for RNLI.
Before getting to Cork the Irish Fivers head to Wales to link up with Port Talbot RNLI for 2 party nights coinciding with the Ireland-Wales Rugby International on February 24th.
