ST Cartha’s Pipe Band presents a fund-raising spectacular, Stars in their Eyes, on Easter Sunday, April 8, at The Blue Haven in Kilcar.
Having enjoyed an extremely busy St Patrick’s weekend playing in the Kilcar, Killybegs and Ardara parades, the stage is now set for a fun filled night of entertainment featuring all new local talent.
This scale of a fundraiser is a first for Kilcar Pipe Band, in order to raise much needed funds for equipment and uniforms due to the rising numbers of young people joining the band.
Established in 1934 the bands future certainly looks bright with the introduction of six new recruits on St Patrick’s weekend and more hoping to join in the near future.
Rehearsals have been on going over the last few weeks, with a fierce rivalry developing between the Stars. Rumour has it that Kilcar’s answer to Matthew Kelly has been amazed at the quality of the acts.
Performing on the night are: Kilcar Pipe Band; Michael Love and Ciaran McDevitt; Clodagh Brady; Maureen and Paddy Carr, Caroline and Stephen O’Donnell; Una Molloy; Stephen McBrearty, Aiden McGinley, Eoin and Ryan McHugh; Christina Gillespie, Irene Carr, Helena Byrne, Grainne McBrearty, Aoife and Niamh Doherty and Charlene Gallagher; Keith Cunningham, Martin Byrne and David McShane.
