Safe Home Ireland concert aims to solidify connections


SAFE Home Ireland will this weekend reach out to their many followers online and look to share their message with as many new friends as possible as they host a live concert on Facebook.

With a range of musicians—including Minister for the Diaspora Ciarán Cannon TD—all ready and waiting to perform, Safe Home Ireland are confident they can provide a first class virtual concert at the same time as sharing their message.

With musicians from all across Ireland and beyond—including performers from New York and London—Scotland are also well represented with Glasgow’s celebrated Paddy Callaghan and highly-sought after grow The Friel Sisters being joined from these shores by Brian Ó hEadhra and Fiona Mackenzie of Inverness.

With thousands of Irish people across the world relying on the advice and support of Safe Home Ireland, as well as the many Irish people who they have helped return to Ireland, the impact of the organisation on the Irish abroad is considerable.

Particularly at this time, efforts such this weekend’s online concert offer a great opportunity to stay connected with Ireland and share in the culture of musicians at home as well as the Irish diaspora throughout the world.

“We are delighted to have a broad range of performances, including the Minister, Ciarán Cannon, TD, together with performers from New York, London, Kerry, Galway, Laois, Cork, Mayo and from Inverness and Glasgow,” Safe Home Ireland said. “Established in 2000, Safe Home Ireland is an Irish emigrant support service, based in County Mayo that provides a range of services to recently returned Irish emigrants and those who may be considering moving back home in the future.

“We provide a free and confidential advice and information service, carry out home visiting and outreach services, and assist qualifying older Irish emigrants to explore and secure housing back home in Ireland.”
