Good news for Christy Moore fans

THERE'S good news this week for fans of Irish music legend Christy Moore as he has added a second date in Carlow.
When Christy expressed an interest in playing a small, intimate gig in the Carlow area, promoter Paddy Carroll suggested a show in the George Bernard Shaw Theatre. Christy has never played in the venue before and was keen to give it a go, so three weeks ago tickets went on sale for a show on Friday September 20.
Owing to Christy's popularity and reputation for delivering a wonderful and often incredibly witty live show, the gig sold out incredibly quickly and broke all previous records at the Theatre for ticket sales.
Christy has now decided to add a second date for Saturday, September 21, and tickets will go on sale from tomorrow, Wednesday, at the box office of the George Bernard Shaw Theatre.
'Quite frankly, in the present downturn, we were amazed that the show sold out so quickly,' said promoter Paddy Carroll. 'It's a great opportunity for fans to see a legendary Irish musician up close and personal in a great venue.'
