“Focus Ireland Lip Sync Battle is a really fun way to support Focus Ireland and enjoy a fantastic night out with family, friends and colleagues. In addition to the thirteen acts who will be battling it out we have the Unity Gospel Choir opening our show and local musician Chris Ward who will be performing on the night so it really will be a great night of fun entertainment!

Focus Irelands help is needed more and more every day and there currently seems to be no end in sight. We are very grateful to all our performer fundraisers for taking part in this event and we are asking Limerick to come along and support them. They are helping all the families, children and young people in Limerick who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and who desperately need Focus Irelands support”.
