The Big Gig for Charity:

A top line up of Irish musical stars have come together for The Big Gig to raise vital funds to assist the victims of the earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria. Devised by legendary singer Mary Coughlan, she has called upon a stellar line up who are giving their time free of charge to the event, being held at Leisureland in Salthill on Saturday, February 25th. 

After hearing Anne O’Rourke on RTE News speaking from a TIAFI Syrian refugee camp, Mary Coughlan decided she needed to do something. And so, The Big Gig was born. This hot ticket event features Kíla, Mary Coughlan, Sharon Shannon, Liam O’Maonlai & friends, Tracy Bruen, Ultan Conlon, Susan O’Neill, Frances Black, Mundy & MC Hector.

 “I’ve been talking to Anne every day since and it’s getting worse at the TIAFA camp,” says Mary. “Everyone involved is giving their services for this concert for free. Please support it”

Team International Assistance for Integration or TIAFI ( in Turkish: Uluslararası Yardımlaşma ve Entegrasyon Derneği) is a registered charity working in Turkey to empower the most vulnerable refugees, women and children, so that they can find the peace, security and respect they deserve

Loads of raffle prizes to be won on the night.
