You might not be able to go out this Valentine’s Day but you can still have a great night by joining the National Breast Cancer Research Institute for a spectacular ‘virtual’ Valentine’s Day Concert with some of the biggest names in Irish music.

The charity’s Valentine’s Ball has been a highlight of the Galway social scene for many years and one of their major fundraising events. Unfortunately due to COVID it’s not possible to hold the fundraiser as normal, but performers including Daniel & Majella O’Donnell, Nathan Carter, Sean Keane, Trudi Lalor, Cliona Hagan, Sandy Kelly, The Fahys & Chris Kelly, Mary Byrne, Mike Denver and many more have united to celebrate ‘Live, Laugh and Love’ while helping to maintain funding for the breast cancer research team based at the Lambe Institute, NUI Galway.

Hosted by Marc Roberts and organised by the charity’s Galway fundraising committee, this promises to be a night not to be missed with each of the artists donating their time to help make a difference for the many Irish women suffering from breast cancer. 1 in 11 Irish women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before 75 years of age with over 3,500 cases diagnosed annually and monies raised from the concert will go directly to support the breast cancer research team lead by Prof. Michael Kerin.

The concert is free but you can make a donation to the charity during the show or up to two weeks afterwards at .

It’s also available to view worldwide so make sure to tell your friends and family to log-on from 8pm Valentine’s night by going to:
