Published on December 7, 2023

The East Clare performing arts community has come together in response to the horrific impact of the war in Palestine on children and families to put together a one-off show this coming Sunday, December 17 in Scarriff GAA Hall at 8pm.  The ‘East Clare for Peace in Palestine’ concert will see some 20 plus of our best known singers, musicians and story-tellers from Bodyke/Tuamgraney, Ogonnelloe, Scarriff and Whitegate deliver what   promises to be a very special performance of favourite songs and stories of peace and Christmas. Proceeds will go to the Irish     Emergency Alliance, an alliance of Action Aid, Christian Aid, Trócaire, World Vision, TearFund, and Plan International, who have   together established a ‘Middle East Emergency Crisis’ in response to the ongoing horror in Gaza.  Tickets are on sale on Eventbrite and can also be purchased at Rodgers’ and Bane’s shops in Scariff, Treacy’s in Tuamgraney, Josie Anne’s in Ogonnelloe and  McDermott’s in Whitegate. Tickets are priced at €20 each and are expected to sell out quickly so the advice is to book early.
