Legendary Irish band Bagatelle will bring their 40th anniversary concert tour to Thurles on Saturday 16th June.
Bagatelle retired in 2016 for all of three months, they got bored not touring and are now performing occasional gigs simply called ‘One for the Road’.
This very special concert will take place in the Premier Hall, Thurles where Bagatelle would have performed to huge audiences in the 80s. Tickets for this event are priced at €20 and are available now from Liam Campion Quality Meats, Bookworm, Ryan’s Daughter Restaurant, O’ Dwyers Pharmacy, Cashel, JKC Toymaster, Nenagh and Gala Templemore. The box office can be contacted on 0894487657/ 0861538355.
This event is arranged by the Moyne Road Residents Association in conjunction with Cameo Care, a local support group for those suffering from dementia. All monies raised from this event will stay within the local community to support the ongoing work of Cameo Care. All those who purchase their ticket before the event will be entered into a draw to win an overnight stay in the five stay Park Hotel Kenmare. Simply write your name on the ticket and it will be collected at the event.
Tommy Barrett, Chairman of the Moyne Road Residents Association spoke to The Tipperary Star about this event:
“We here in Moyne Road are delighted to be in a position to arrange this event to benefit the great work that Cameo Care does for those suffering from dementia in our community. We are delighted to bring Bagatelle to Thurles as they celebrate forty years of producing original music. We expect that this will be a fully sold out event so we encourage those who plan to attend to purchase their ticket well in advance. I look forward to a musical trip down memory lane with all the classics that Bagatelle have recorded such as – Summer in Dublin, Second Violin, She doesn’t live here anymore, Lesson Street Lady, Jersey Girl - the list is endless. This is a night not to be missed in the company of one of Ireland’s greatest bands. I will leave the last word on Bagatelle to legendary Irish musician Phil Coulter who himself will perform in Thurles Cathedral on September 28th of this year, another night not to be missed. ‘Bagatelle’s ‘Summer in Dublin’ is, without doubt, one of the iconic records in the history of popular music in Ireland. Having produced one of their albums, I have great affection for the lads and great respect for their contribution to the business,' Phil Coulter said.
