A Night For Palestine at Dolan’s will raise vital funds to aid medical relief in Gaza on Wednesday, November 29, International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

An evening of art and reflection, this event aims to give space to Limerick’s Palestinian community, raise vital funds for Gaza, and support Palestine Children’s Relief Fund and Red Crescent.

A wide array of artists (The Whileaways; Greenshine; Róisín El Cherif; Annie Cheevers; Abe Soare and more) will gather upstairs in Dolan’s to sing and speak into the darkness, in creative solidarity and action against the devastation being experienced right now in Gaza and beyond.

Through ticket sales and a very special charity head-shave, A Night For Palestine will raise funds for the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund and Red Crescent.

An event organiser shared an insight into the night saying, “This is an incredibly important time where the creative community across Ireland must come together in solidarity and support for the Palestinian community. We must speak out against the humanitarian crisis we’re seeing right before our eyes.

 “The hope for this evening in Dolan’s is that the Palestinian community in Limerick feel welcome and supported. We want to raise funds to aid medical relief, but we’d also love to create meaningful connections between our communities on the night.

“We’re excited to welcome folk legends The Whileaways and Greenshine, as well as Palestinian-Irish artist Róisín El Cherif to Limerick on the 29th. We’ll see a return to the stage for Limerick’s own Abe Soare, a special performance from Limerick’s adopted daughter Annie Cheevers, and fresh off the back of the launch of his third book, author Daniel J Mooney will be having his head shaved on the night for the cause.

“We are so grateful to the artists giving freely of their time to join this lineup, and we would really love to hear from any Palestinian artists and speakers local to Limerick who would also like to be part of this event. They can email us at [email protected] for more information.”

Tickets are priced at €20 plus booking fee and are available HERE

A Night For Palestine: Wednesday, November 29 – Doors at 6.30pm & kick-off at 7.00pm.
