A Brilliant Benefit Concert Is Being Organised For Clodagh Cogley And Berkeley Survivors

Show your support while enjoying a brilliant line-up!


In a heartwarming move, friends of Clodagh Cogley, one of the victims of the Berkeley balcony collapse survivors, are organising a fundraiser to help those affected by the tragedy. The concert will take place later this month on Thursday, July 23 in the Academy in Dublin.

Many acts have been confirmed for the event with many yet to be announced, among them are Jape, Vann Music, Heroes in Hiding, Dublin Gospel Choir, Knights of Leon, Neon Atlas and Mongoose, while ex-Westlife member Nicky Byrne will be master of ceremonies.

All proceeds from the event will go towards helping the families who were injured by the Berkley tragedy, which took the lives of six students and left seven others seriously injured, such as Clodagh Cogley who suffered two collapsed lungs, a broken shoulder and knee, five broken ribs and a broken spinal cord.

Tickets cost €25 and are on sale now. Anyone who can't attend but wishes to make a donation to the fund can visit its Go Fund Me page. The aim is to raise €10,000, but we hope they'll far exceed their target for this very worthy cause!
