Riverdance and Mario Rosenstock set to perform at our Gala Concert in March

Riverdance, Mario Rosenstock, Kila and many more are set to perform in a Gala Concert, taking place in Dublin on 11 March to support our Hurricane Matthew recovery work in Haiti.

Presented by John McColgan, the award-winning producer and director of Riverdance, the Gala Concert arrives in the Convention Centre Dublin from 7.30pm on Saturday, 11 March.

MCs Miriam O’Callaghan and Brendan O’Connor will welcome a host of other special guests to the stage, including Róisín O, The Line-Up Choir, Vladimir and Anton, and Patrick Bergin.

John, along with his film-maker brother Gerry and actor/writer son Danny, travelled to Haiti to see first-hand our emergency response in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, which hit on 4 October 2016.

He said: “Having travelled to different parts of the world affected by poverty and conflict – including Palestine – we wanted to visit Haiti to capture the stories of its people, explore reality on the ground, and document how the Haitian people are rebuilding their lives after the devastation of the third major natural disaster in just six years.  It was a truly eye-opening and thought-provoking experience to do so with Haven, and I am delighted to be able to share it with the people of Ireland at this Gala Concert.  I wish to sincerely thank all the performers who are taking part: together, we can help the people of Haiti to restore their livelihoods and communities after this immensely challenging time”.
