The Levenshulme Pub Company, the Keegan Academy of Irish Dance, the Manchester Mayo Tourism and Business group and the Full Irish Radio have all joined forces to stage a special fund raising event to support Manchester’s New Rose of Tralee winner – Mairead Hussey.
The group will be staging a mammoth Irish Music and Dancing session in the Union Inn on Stockport Road in Levenshulme. The Levenshulme Pub Company are donating all the bar takings from the event to help support Mairead and her sponsors The Keegan Academy of Irish Dance who are going over for trip the Regional Final.
Mairead commented “I’m really excited about the Rose of Tralee Regional Final in Ireland and the tremendous amount of support that I have been getting from everyone in Manchester. I’m hoping that all my friends and family will come down to play a few tunes or show us a step or just to enjoy the craic. It would be great to set a new record for cramming the most musicians and dancers performing in a pub.”
Lawrence Hennigan the CEO of the Levenshulme Pub Company and one of the directors of the Manchester Mayo Business and Tourism group commented “We are delighted to be involved with this fund raising event to support Mairead in her quest to represent Manchester in the Rose of Tralee and the Keegan Academy who sponsored her in the Manchester heat. As a musician she has always supported us in numerous community events and we are happy to support her. I also know that all the dancers in the Keegan Academy are behind her all the way. I have even got a special table set up for Declan Murphy to perform his Sean Nos Table dancing.”
The event organizers are looking to enlist as many Irish musicians and dancers as possible to perform at the session which will be staged from 7pm-10pm on Tuesday 13 May and its free entry. To register your interest in performing at the event or donating a prize for the raffle just email mayomanchester@gmail.com or loukeegan@yahoo.com
