What an event! Irish island folk reach out to help island brethren from Haiti here in the heart of New York.
The Haitian band Bother High Kanaval rocked the house, adding a whole new dimension to the craic. Never heard anything like it. Neither did Malachy McCourt.
The night raised $107,000 for the great Irish organization Concern’s critical work in Haiti.
