On Thursday, February 20, Southill Bingo and Southill Hub present Hoolie in the Hub. The event will work as a fundraiser for the Share A Dream Foundation.





Hoolie in the Hub will give attendees a night to remember, full of country and western music to enjoy. Some of the featured musicians will include ascending-to-stardom performers around Ireland.

Clodagh Lawlor and Colin Kenny will make the night spectacular as they perform some of their hits, along with former The Voice of Ireland star Cristin Keane. Lawlor, specialising in Irish folk and country music, has recently released her single “One Day at a Time”.

Kenny has made progress in his music career through Facebook. He announced a new song “Head Over Heals In Love” on January 28, 2020 and is hoping to make more in the future.

The funds raised from Hoolie in the Hub will go towards supporting the Share a Dream Foundation. Their hope is to bring terminally ill children’s fulfilled dreams to life. Each event associated with the Share a Dream Foundation tries to include the child’s immediate family as much as possible.

Ronan Dunne, executive of the Southill Bingo committee, helped organise this event. He said, “On Behalf of the Southill Bingo committee we are excited for the community of Southill to come along to the Hub to enjoy a night of country music in an old fashioned barn dance.”

“We want to give back to ‘Share a Dream’ as they have gone through so much and it’s times like this when a community bands together. From the acts to the organizers, everyone is excited to have a Hoolie in the Hub and we hope when people leave, it will be with a sense of pride that they have donated to such a wonderful cause,” he added.

Tickets can be purchased for from the Southill Hub or can call 061 – 603710 or 085-1924988. Adults pay €5 while children are only €3 but must be with an adult. Doors open at 7:00pm for the start at 7:30pm. This is a non-alcoholic event.
