A classical concert takes place in St Mary's Cathedral in Limerick tonight at which donations can be made to help the family of a 12-year-old girl seriously injured in a rowing accident on the River Shannon last February.

Amy Mulcahy was out rowing with four other young friends from the Athlunkard boat club on Saturday 23 February when the boat capsized at Thomond Weir, trapping Amy underneath.

She was rushed to hospital and later transferred to Temple Street Hospital in Dublin, where she continues to be treated.

Several musicians from the World Music academy and others are performing in a free concert tonight at the 12th century Church of Ireland cathedral as part of 'Radharc Na hAbhann' during the city's bank holiday Riverfest festival.

People can make donations, which will go to the Amy Mulcahy Fund.

Amy's family have thanked Dean Niall Sloane and Rev Edna Wakely and parishioners for their support.

The Mulcahy family said: "Amy is presently stable though is still very unwell. She requires constant vigilance and care.

"We appreciate so much the ongoing support and help that Amy receives. Thank you to everyone.

"A particular thanks and appreciation to all involved in Friday night's concert in St Mary's cathedral."

A special ecumenical prayer service will also take place at St Mary's Cathedral on Sunday morning, celebrating the culture history and stories of all of those who use and work on the River Shannon, on waterways and seas.

It will include staff from the LÉ Eithne, which will be docked in Limerick during Riverfest weekend.
