A chairde,

Fuair mé an teachtaireacht seo inniu ó Chomhaltas Ceoltóiri Éireann,
faoi thábhairneoir i New Orleans, Danny O'Flaherty --
is as Conamara é.

Go raibh maith agaibh.

"An urgent plea from Danny Doyle:

Dear Friends Of Irish Music, Your help is desperately needed.

Because of Hurricane Katrina, Danny O'Flaherty, the internationally
acclaimed musician-singer ("A treasure-house of Gaelic culture," says
the New Orleans Times-Picayune) and organizer of the New Orleans Celtic
Nations Festival ("and a truly fine person I'm proud to call friend,"
says Ira) has probably lost his home and most certainly lost his
business, O'Flaherty's Irish Pub in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Danny and his family are safe and sound, but for the foreseeable
future his livelihood is gone:
"My lifelong goal remains a commitment to the Celtic people and
culture. There is no greater accomplishment than to pass on the
traditions of our common ancestors. Through community outreach
activities like my educational programs and concerts at O'Flaherty's,
I aspire to instil in children and adults alike a pride in our rich
heritage." -- Danny O'Flaherty,

Danny Doyle is organising a benefit concert in Washington DC for Danny
O, and I join him in asking ask you, if you can, to buy a ticket or
tickets. Tickets are $25 each, or whatever you can spare. Many on this
e-mail list may not live in or near DC and will not be able to attend
the concert, but you may care to contribute something. It would help
Danny O'Flaherty greatly, and get him back on his feet doing what he
does so well.
Thank you for helping a fine artist in this time of need.
Please make checks payable to "Danny O'Flaherty" and send them to
Danny Doyle, 10836 Moore Drive, Manassas, VA 20111-2925. He will get
them to Danny O right away.
