THE Regional Cultural Centre and Letterkenny Chamber are putting in place plans for a virtual St Patrick’s Day celebration that will invite a worldwide audience into the Cathedral town.
The online celebration will feature a host of Donegal’s top musical talents, Irish dancers, and a late night live-streamed after party.
This year’s celebration will feature professionally-filmed live sets from Pat Gallagher (Goats Don’t Shave), Tanya McCole, Megan Nic Ruairí, Brendan Quinn, Seamus McGuire and Steve Cooney, Martin Orr and Sailor Bill.
There will also be performances from Irish dancers Eoghan Boyce and Sophia Whoriskey, while the festivities will be closed out in style with a late night live-streamed after party featuring popular Letterkenny DJs, Daithi Ramsay and Marty McIntyre.
Michael Margey, President of Letterkenny Chamber, said they were delighted to work with such fantastic Donegal artists to celebrate together while still apart.
“St. Patrick’s Day kicks off the year for many of us but we can’t have the Parade weaving its way through Letterkenny this year. The collaboration with the Regional Cultural Centre has been tremendous, their expertise will result in a quality concert, not to be missed,” he said.
More event information and links to the stream will be posted on Regional Cultural Centre and Letterkenny Chamber social media platforms and on in the lead-up to St Patrick’s Day.
Join the Regional Cultural Centre & Letterkenny Chamber on YouTube or Facebook from 8pm on St. Patrick’s Day for what promises to be a fun night of good craic and brilliant music.
Highland Radio will broadcast the concert live on the airwaves from 8pm.
