Friends will likely be handled to a drinks reception, dinner and a night of dancing to The Beafsteak Dances. The gifted Pat McClean will carry out his track ‘Large Man from Dumboe’ and launch a CD of the monitor that celebrates one among Donegal’s finest gamers. You’ll be able to hearken to the splendidly crafted tune right here.
Funds raised from the occasion will go to the Martin Griffin Fund launched by Martin’s daughters, Anne Marie and Donna, to help younger folks within the Twin Cities by way of sports activities or schooling help.
