A host of stars will begin to arrive in Donegal today ahead of tomorrow night’s ‘Together for Creeslough’ concert.
Renowned pianist, Claire Bowes (nee Gallagher), who lost her sight in the Omagh bomb, was added to the ticket for the sellout gig last week.
She will join a star-studded line-up of musicians in the Aura Leisure Centre who will share their talents to thank those involved in the aftermath of the Creeslough tragedy.
Ten people were killed following an explosion at the Applegreen Service Station in the village on the afternoon of Friday, October 7th.
Among the many invited to the concert are the families of those who lost their lives and also members of the emergency services who fought bravely to save them.
The idea for the one-off event came about during a conversation between organiser Joe Gallagher, and Irish pop star, Brian McFadden (pictured), whose father, Brendan, is a native of Creeslough.
Tickets for the event sold out within hours of going on sale on December 17th. The line-up for Monday night includes Keith Duffy, Brian Kennedy, Mickey Joe Harte, Lisa McHugh, Claire Bowe, and The Whistling Donkeys.
Doors will open at the Aura Leisure Centre on Monday at 7 pm and the concert will get underway at 8 pm. Co-hosts for the star-studded night will be Clannad’s Moya Brennan and Altan’s Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh.
