Bliain deacair a bhí ann do chách, agus to ár saolta uilig tar éis athrú go hiomlán. Faraor ní raibh deis againn seinm le chéile ar feadh i bhfad, agus seans nach bhfeicfimis a chéile ar feadh cúpla mí eile. Inniú táimid ar fad ag teacht le chéile ón ár mbailte féin, chun tacaíocht a thabhairt do charthanacht iontach agus chun cúpla tiúin a sheinm. Tá súil againn teacht le chéile lá éigin go luath agus seinm mar ghrúpa, ach go dtí sin, suí siar, lig do scíth agus bain taitneamh as an gceol.
This has been a very difficult year for everybody, and all of our everyday lives have been completely changed. Unfortunately, it has been a long time since we have been able to come together to play a few tunes, and it may be a long time still until we can do that again. Today we are coming together from the comfort of our own homes, to support an amazing charity and to play music for you. Hopefully one day, we might repeat this feat in person but for now, sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
This event is in support of the Alzheimers Society of Ireland. Check out their website www.alzheimer.ie for more information.
Dementia presents one of the greatest population health challenges both here in Ireland and globally. It affects almost 64,000 people and touches the lives of carers and hundreds of thousands of family members. The Alzheimer Society of Ireland in turn offers hope, as well as much-needed practical support, and donations such as yours go such a long way in helping us to provide services to those who really need them.
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is the leading dementia-specific service provider in Ireland.
They work across the country in the heart of local communities providing dementia-specific services and supports and advocating for the rights and needs of all people living with dementia and their carers.
