Safe Home Ireland are delighted to be hosting a Facebook Live Concert, led by Ambassador and singer/ songwriter Seán Keane on Mayo Day, Saturday 1st May.
Seán will be joined by an outstanding lineup of internationally acclaimed singers, songwriters, musicians, and dancers, all from Co. Mayo and many performing from iconic locations around the county.
The line-up includes Stephen Doherty, Olwyn Murray, Coda, Rose/Cónan Kilcoyne and Pat Mulloy and Atlantic Rhythm/Moffatt School of Irish Dancing.
Safe Home Ireland was established in Mulranny in 2000, where their head office is still located. They are a national charity with a global remit who are extremely proud of their Mayo roots. Therefore as part of their 21st Birthday celebrations, they said they are delighted to be partnering with Mayo County Council to organise this virtual concert for Mayo Day 2021.
According to Safe Home Ireland CEO, Karen McHugh, “Mayo people are fiercely proud of their origins and heritage and Co. Mayo is the only county to have an annual day that is dedicated to its people and place. While we are really looking forward to connecting with our Mayo friends, family, colleagues in Ireland and abroad, our Concert is not just open to Mayo people, we hope that we will get people from all counties and countries logging on to connect and enjoy a varied and enjoyable event from the comfort of their own home”
“The global health pandemic has had an impact on Safe Home Ireland’s services, and the people it supports and one of our main challenges is promoting our service so that the Irish community abroad are aware of who we are, what we do, and how they can access the supports that we offer.
“We really hope that this Concert will help us to spread the word about Safe Home, and allow us all to feel connected in a time when we must stay apart, and enjoy an evening of ‘Ceol, Caint agus Craic’, together”.
The concert can be viewed at this link on Saturday at 18.00 (UTC+1)
