A special CD has been launched to raise €50,000 for a leading Irish charity working to help Ireland's most impoverished and vulnerable children.
To celebrate the Irish Youth Foundation's 30th anniversary, singer songwriters Paul Brady and Gavin Glass have recorded a unique version of Bob Dylan's 'Forever Young'.
The song is part of a collection by various Irish artists which was recently recorded at the Windmill Lane sessions.
The acts include Kodaline, Fight Like Apes, Damien Dempsey, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Aslan, Ryan Sheridan, Frances Black, Mary Coughlan and Ham Sandwich.
The project is sponsored by independent.ie, and all funds raised will go directly to disadvantaged children and youth projects all across Ireland.
Priced at €10, 'Forever Young/The Windmill Lane Sessions' goes on sale today in Starbucks and Centra stores throughout the country. It's also available to download from independent.ie and iTunes.
