Super Acoustic Picnic night

Unfortunately, the Diary was out of the country and couldn’t attend Thursday’s Acoustic Picnic 2 in the Town Hall Theatre, writes Brian Byrne. These photographs and report from Gerry O’Donoghue’s Maintain Hope Facebook page sum it up, though.

Acoustic Picnic! A night to remember!Wonderful music. Wonderful audience! Can't wait until next year! Huge thanks to Eilis Phillips, Eve McMahon, Maria Barton, Derek Barton, Kieran Behan, Mary Young, Tomás O'Pōil, Aidan Flynn, Cathú, Robert Woulfe, Conor Mahony, Peter Byrne, Frank Mitchell, Julie O'Donoghue, Iseult O' Donoghue.

Not enough words to thank Roy Thompson cool, calm, collected and cheerful from vision to completion. Legend. Beautiful and moving rendition of ‘Brand New Day’, the Maintain Hope anthem. Food, rent and medicine for our children in Ngong. Asanteni sana. Thank you all for always saying "YES". There's always hope!
