Derry Rossport SOS Fundraiser

On Sunday, May 22nd a line up of well know musicians will lend their talent to raise money for the Rossport campaign.   ‘Rossport SOS’ will see renowned fiddler, Tommy Peoples, the ever popular Henry Girls from Inishowen and local Derry musicians take to the stage upstairs in Sandinos from 9.30pm.Solidarity in Donegal and Derry has been built up over the past ten years and people continue to travel down to Rossport to support the local community in one of the longest running and most contentious campaigns in memory.     

For many in Donegal, the Rossport campaign has far reaching implications which will have a direct impact on people all along the North West coast.   

As an independent charitable organisation, An Taisce will need to fundraise to assist with the considerable costs associated with preparing for and mounting a Judicial Review.  An Taisce invites people and organisations from around the country and beyond, to rally quickly to support An Taisce in its ongoing commitment to ensure the rule of environmental law is upheld robustly in Ireland.

Line up : Tommy Peoples, The Henry Girls, Damian Nixon and Friends, Johanna Fegan
Doors open at 9pm and tickets are £4 on the door or in advance from Sandinos, Tinneys or An Culturalann
