The Stunning - to play at Barretstown gig

A number of new acts have been added to the line up for the Barretstown Inspirations Gig in the Olympic on May 2nd.

Joining The Stunning, The 4 of Us and Republic of Loose will be Paddy Casey, The Hot Sprockets and The Barretstown Allstars, a ‘supergroup’ that includes Irish music legends Tom Dunne and Jerry Fish. More special guests will be announced over the coming weeks.

The show, which will be hosted by Ray D’Arcy, raises much needed funds for Barretstown, the residential camp for children with serious illness set up by the late, great Hollywood actor Paul Newman.

The charity is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year having been set up in 1994. 

Dee Ahearn, CEO of Barretstown commented "We're so grateful to all the wonderful musicians who've given up their time to perform at the Inspirations gigs over the last five years. We're really excited about this year’s line-up and we're looking forward to another amazing night on May 2nd."

Tickets, priced at €36.50, are available at www.ticketmaster.ie or by calling 0818 719 300. All proceeds go directly to Barretstown.
