C.D. Launch - Henry Shefflin, along with Liam McCarthy, extend an invitation to you to the Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny on Thursday 22nd November at 8 pm for the launch of “The Spirit of Christmas” CD in association with the Building of Hope Project. The CD was recorded by the children who attend the Likoni School for the Blind in Mombasa, Kenya. 183 volunteers from all over Ireland travelled to Mombasa in January and February 2012 and built a home for these blind children. Outside of Co. Clare, the largest number of volunteers came from the Kilkenny-Carlow area. The CD comprises of 8 Christmas Carols. The children put a great effort into the recording of the CD as they had to learn the words through braille and in English. They will be on sale on the night for €10 each and all proceeds will be used by the charity for the children’s medical, social and educational needs. Come along and meet Henry and Liam and support a very worthy cause.
