Ballinahinch Camino Walkers present a Fundraising Evening of Music with country singer James Kilbane for The Irish Hospice Association

James Kilbane

James Kilbane will bring his very personal Country Gospel evening to Ballinahinch, Birdhill, and St. Joseph’s Church on Thursday 17th May at 8pm.   

The event is in support of the Irish Hospice Association and the fundraising efforts of sisters Bernie McCullough and Theresa King towards walking the Camino Way later this year.  The sisters will be part of the Irish Hospice Association walk on the Camino.  Bernie and Theresa have previously completed the Portuguese Way for Hospice and were part of the 55 people who combined helped raise €90,000 for the charity.  

This time the sisters are aiming to walk the Camino by raising a target of €5,000 or more on their part for Hospice.   The evening with James Kilbane is part of their many fundraising events and activities taking place in their community and all support would be appreciated from far and wide for this event.  

This very enjoyable event  of country song and music with James Kilbane will be a very personal intimate evening and somewhat different to his concert events.  As James has a new album “The Family Collection” for the World Meeting of Families, he will sing many of his country songs that have strong emphasis on everyday Christian family life with all its joys and struggles. 

James is married with 28 years to Christina and has two adult children.  James is very happy to be involved in supporting Hospice and the efforts of Bernie and Theresa.  James lost his father Michael to cancer in 2008 and he has seen first hand the care, help and support given by the Hospice team at the time for his Dads final two weeks of life. 

Since 2004 James Kilbane continues to work in Christian and country music, working closely with communities and groups all over Ireland and even America.  

Today his music is growing far and wide in such countries as Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, South America as well as America, the United Kingdom and Canada.  Kilbane’s home grown approach attracts many from every walk of life, traditions and all are very welcome to Ballinahinch on the 17th May.  Currently Kilbane presents his own weekly Sunday gospel show on SKY television.  The Ballinahinch evening will include stories of life, family and faith as well as songs including There is a place, Mama’s Roses, Because He Lives, The Richest Man, The Nazarene Song and so many more.  

To attend and help support Hospice and the work of Bernie and Theresa then event donation tickets are €10 and are available from The Treats Coffee Shop, Main Street Newport, An Bonnán Buí Pub, Birdhill or direct from Theresa or Bernie at 087 2950411.  Doors 7.30pm and the event starting at 8pm.  All support will be greatly appreciated.
