One Of Ireland’s Finest Balladeers To Go Live For GAA Club’s Unique Kenya Project

Celtic fan, Chris Carney of Erin Go Bragh band in Dublin, is set to perform a live set on the Erin Go Bragh band Facebook page this week. The gig, which takes place at 18:30 on Friday (8 May), is in aid of St Jude’s GAA (Bournemouth & Southampton) project in Kenya.

Celtic supporting musicians have been excelling themselves performing live throughout the coronavirus crisis and doing their bit to entertain and raise spirits. There have been some truly wonderful Celtic events to enjoy.

The GAA club will be travelling to Camp Tsavo in November, where they will be building classrooms for impoverished children at a local primary school, whilst the volunteers will also teach the children a combination of Football and Gaelic Football, before hosting a GAA tournament for children in Nairobi. A set of Celtic jerseys will also be handed out to the school pupils.

With flights and camp registrations paid, the proceeds of this gig will go towards purchasing building supplies for the project, which takes on a whole greater level of importance as the already poverty stricken village faces a battle to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

Chris, who recently performed a sell out gig for Celtic supporters in Rome on the eve of the Hoops’ victory over Lazio, has agreed to help the charitable cause. Going live from his Dublin home, he will be performing a range of ballads in his own superb style. A PayPal link will accompany the video with Celtic fans and the GAA community invited to make a donation if they would like to do so and are able to lend support.

You can see some clips of Chris doing what he does best in the videos below, including his performance of Sean South for Celtic fans at Peadar Brown’s pub in Dublin. Erin Go Bragh’s superb Live at Peader’s album is also available from the bar’s Facebook page here.
