Minstrel Music man John Fitzgerald has invited Harp readers to support his big charity night at The Irish Centre on Friday, October 16th.

Six local charities will benefit from a donation of £1,000 each.

The highlight of the evening is the charity auction and this year John tells us that the items worth bidding for are the best ever-these include a weekend for two at the McKeefrey Irish Music Festival in November, an Irish Ferries Travel Voucher, a stay at Cassidy`s

Hotel in Dublin and a Dan Dooley Car hire for one week-also in Ireland.

This is just a taster there are another 24 wonderful items to bid for.

MC and auctioneer for the night is Bob Brolly, and in addition to the auction there is plenty of entertainment on offer plus a display of Irish dancing from the Scanlon School.

The evening gets under way at 8pm and admission is free by ticket- obtainable from, John`s Minstrel Music shop at the Irish Centre. Tel: 0121 622 3763.
