This is the fourth Annual Music for Mental Health gig organised by Karl Daly. The first Music for Mental Health was launched as a once-off fundraiser in January 2018 but such was its success, within three years it raised €57,500 for good causes working on suicide prevention, domestic abuse support and advancement of education.

Encouraging people to come along or pledge their support, Karl Daly said, “This event is about bringing awareness to the issues of mental health and the supports available while raising funds for the organisations that work at the coalface every day. Feedback from previous events tells us we need to continue shining the spotlight and supporting one another.”
