Orlaith to hold community concert

Orlaith Furey.

PLUMBRIDGE’s Glór Tíre contestant Orlaith Furey will do her bit for her flood-hit hometown next month, with a fund-raising night of music. 

Also in March Orlaith will compete in live performances for the hit TG4 programme. 

Owing much of her success to the support and encouragement from the Plumbridge community, Orlaith is keen to help with the village’s ongoing flood repair efforts.

“Due to flood damages in Plumbridge, I have decided to run a night to bring the wider community together,” she said. “I am hoping to raise money for the restoration of Plumbridge Church, that is much needed in the local community. As a Plumbridge local, I was always encouraged by the local parish to pursue my musical ambitions. I am extremely thankful to everyone from the parish and I am keen to give back to such a generous community.”

The show will feature performances from Orlaith herself, along with a variety of special guests. In addition, a grand draw will be held with the a top prize of a Tyrone Jersey signed by the Tyrone team. Draw tickets are available in local shops around Plumbridge.

“This is sure to be a great night of entertainment and enjoyment for a very worthy cause!” Orlaith added. The event will take place at Leo McCullagh’s bar in Plumbridge on March 16 at 9.30pm. All donations are welcomed, and those wishing to donate can call 07711909771 for more information.
