Colm’s 50th Birthday Online Music Event


Colm Weadick from Arklow had to cancel his 50th birthday celebrations due to Covid-19. Using his music connections and inspired by Lady Gaga’s One World music event, he came up with a novel idea to organise an online charity music event.

He asked over 50 musicians and 42 made it for the video which was shown on Tues 5th May. The videos were over 2 hours long and showed a variety of music and messages.

Funds raised were shared between St. Vincent’s Hospital and Asgard Lodge Nursing Home in Arklow. St. Vincent’s were delighted to receive €500 from this event, to be used for PPE for Frontline staff.

Our thanks to Colm and all who supported this event.
