This is a very rare opportunity to catch Irish cultural icon and national treasure Christy Moore perform completely solo performing songs from his vast back-catalogue of critically acclaimed albums. Christy wanted to take this opportunity to pay personal tribute to the late music promoter and manager Derek Nally, our colleague here in Whelan’s who passed away last month. Writing on his website, Christy said: “There will be a gig in Whelans of Dublin on October 19th. I want to play in memory of Derek Nally who passed recently. I wish to acknowledge his devotion to and passion for Live Music. He was a gentle man and he shared his love of music with thousands of us over the years. Details will be on the gig page soon … Get in quick! All proceeds will go to Derek’s young family.
