If you happen to be doing a little shopping in Clonmel on Saturday, 16th June, keep an ear peeled and an eye out for local Clonmel Trad & Folk Group, ‘South Wind’, who will be performing two Charity Busking Gigs on the day.

On the Saturday morning between 11 am and 1 pm, ‘South Wind’ will be belting out their stuff at Super Valu in the Poppyfields. After lunch the self described “mature” music group will transfer over to Tesco and will provide entertainment to all customers from 2.30 until 4.30 pm.

The Charity Busking gigs are being undertaken to help with fundraising for the Friends of Bridgewater House and Knocklofty Rural Day Service.

The “Friends” were formed mainly by the parents of children and young disabled persons who attend at both premises. Funds raised by them are used in the main to provide a well-deserved summer holiday for those who attend the centres, and also when funds allow to attend the occasional concert in Dublin, Cork, etc. The benefits of these little extras are priceless to the children and young adults, and the appreciation, in return, immeasurable.

So if you are in the vicinity of either Super Valu or Tesco on Saturday, 16th June, enjoy the music and give the Friends of Bridgewater House and Knocklofty Rural Day Service a leg up. It is a charity fully deserving of your support.

‘South Wind’ will also play Moynihans Bar, Upper Gladstone Street, Clonmel on Friday, 8th June at 9.30 pm.

“South Wind” is comprised of Ann Dwyer, Edel Meaney, Treasa Nic Dhiarmada, Mary Morris, Oliver Harte, Tommy Hartigan, Liam O’Shea and Tony Brosnan.
