    Music: Aisling Live in Studio

    On this, her first ever studio album, Hold My Dream, Aisling co-wrote six of the ten tracks and she is deeply flattered by the comparisons of her sound and style to those of the multi-million selling Enya and Clannad. She also sang all the backing vocals which adds to the spirituality, depth and very personal feel of the sound.

    Inner City Helping the Homeless

    Anthony Flynn, a bar manager working in Dublin city, saw many homeless people living on the streets every night and he and his friends got together and decided to do something about it. Through Facebook they called out for volunteers and it went from there. Month by month they got more organised and after Christmas they set up a company with a Board of Management chaired by the Lord Mayor with offices in Killarney St. The company is called Inner City Helping the Homeless.
