Riverdance and Mario Rosenstock are among the star performers at a Gala Concert in aid of Haven.

John McColgan is presenting the unique fundraising concert Haven for Haiti - with performances from Róisín O, Kila and a host of special guests at the Convention Centre, Dublin, on Saturday, March 11. All proceeds raised will go directly to Haven's emergency recovery work on the ground in Haiti in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, which hit in October 2016.

Miriam O'Callaghan and Brendan O'Connor will MC the Gala Concert as it aims to support the people of Haiti, which remains one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere.

Haven's team is leading the recovery process on the remote island of Île à Vache, which was in the eye of the most powerful hurricane to hit Haiti in over 50 years.

The Haven team is now supporting local people to rebuild their damaged homes and farms. Tickets starting from €25 are available from Ticketmaster.
