Celebrity lawyer Gerald Kean is holding a special concert at Drayton Manor in aid of Barretstown and Cork Down Syndrome.

The fundraising concert will take place tomorrow, from 7.30pm.

Guests will be treated to dinner and drinks before special performances by Mundy and the Hot House Flowers.

Tickets are €80 per person and either ticket purchases and/or sponsorship is certainly welcome.

"If ever you have the opportunity of visiting either Barretstown or Cork Down Syndrome then you will appreciate the importance of raising as much funds as possible for these great charities," Gerald said.

"I am delighted to support Barretstown and was very appreciative of a lifetime achievement award they presented to me in Dublin Castle late last year."

Anyone interested in attending tomorrow night's event can contact Keans solicitors.

A concert for Robyn

A number of Irish music stars are coming together to raise money for young Dublin girl Robyn Smith, who needs more than €300,000 to go to America for treatment.

Robyn, who is just 10-years-old, suffers from neuroblastoma and has been battling childhood cancer since the age of three.

In order to raise much-needed funds to help save Robyn's life, her family and friends have organised a 'Gig for Robyn', which will be held in Whelans on Wexford Street this evening from 8pm.

An amazing line-up of Irish talent playing on the night include The Riptide Movement, Paddy Casey and Liam O Maonlai (inset, left) of The Hothouse Flowers - who has a busy week of charity events.

Comedian Willie White will MC the concert and all proceeds will go to the Robyn's Life Trust. Tickets from €16 are available from www.wavtickets.ie.

Prodigy gig in Dublin

The Prodigy will play Dublin's 3Arena as part of a huge arena tour this winter.

The Firestarter stars will hit the capital on November 30 with special guests Public Enemy.

The band are touring with their latest album, The Day is My Enemy.

Tickets for the show are priced from €52.65, including booking fee, and will go on sale this Friday, at 930am from Ticketmaster.
