derek ryanKeep free 13th February 2014 for a gala concert in aid of Tydavnet School with local singing sensation Aidan Clerkin, Knockballyroney, and one of today’s biggest Irish Country artists Derek Ryan. Funding is vital to maintain the many activities enjoyed by pupils throughout the year, such as arts and crafts, computers, participation in competitions and treats on special occasions, so support for this big event is very much appreciated. Now with four critically acclaimed albums on release including his most recent, ‘Country Soul’, a five piece band and thousands of fans, Derek is well ahead of his dream. His touring band is also made up of fantastic musicians including bass guitarist Niall Murphy from Emyvale who previously gigged with Jimmy Buckley, Big Tom, Mick Flavin, Susan Mc Cann, Brian Coll and Patrick Feeney, and vocalist and drummer Barry Kirwan, son of singing sensation Dominic Kirwan from Tyrone. It’s sure to be a great night, tickets are now available, so get yours early from the Parent’s Association or from the school.
