The Lourdes musicians, a group of musicians all from Limerick, that go to the Lourdes Pilgrimage each year, have organised this fundraising concert.

“There are so many volunteers going to Lourdes each year like nurses, handmaids, and the youth groups that do fantastic work, so as musicians we wanted to use our skills to do something extra from our backs to assist the Lourdes fund,” said Niamh Irwin, one of the Limerick Lourdes musicians organising the fundraising concert.
