Fear-Less Gig and Live Poetry Mic, Imperial Hotel, Dundalk

On 29 September, we gathered at the Imperial Hotel in Dundalk for a night of music and poetry and to raise funds for Sosad and Jigsaw. To give you a flavour of some of the brilliant performances, we’ve put together a compilation of clips featuring many of our performers.

What a great night!

In music, we had Brian, the Accidental Rapper, Brian the Lion Colhoun, Warren Ahern, and Luke Clerkin and on the poetry side, we had Daragh Fleming, Marian Brannagan, Michael Farrell, Darcey Dugan, Gerald Cosgrove, John Noonan, Joan Thorpe, Brendan Collins, Bridget Nelson reading for Patricia Reynolds, and Noel Sharkey.

A big thank you to you all, you were all fantastic!

We would also like to thank Breffni Lynch for speaking about living with schizophrenia in such an insightful, open, and funny way. Thank you, Breffni!
