Daniel O’Donnell, Nathan Carter and various other artists are coming together this weekend to help victims of the Donegal floods.

Those living on the Inishowen peninsula’s lives have been devastated by the torrential rain of last week which has displaced many locals from their homes and livelihood.

Daniel was contacted by local woman Deirdre Grant who asked the country music community could put together a fundraising event.

A number of other country music stars agreed to take part in the Flood Aid for Inishowen event.

Daniel will be joined on stage by Nathan Carter, as well as Declan Nearney, Johnny Brady and Dominic and Barry Kirwan.

The event takes place in the Aura Centre in Letterkenny next Sunday, September 3rd at 3pm.

Well known Donegal personality Noel Cunningham will host the show ably assisted by Phil Mack from the Keep it Country Music Channel.

In a video about the event, Daniel said that he was devastated by the disaster.

“I’m sure like myself you are all shocked and horrified but thank God nobody lost their lives” he said,

“As well as the money raised we hope that the people of Inishowen will derive some sort of comfort from this show of support and that their plight is being heard”.

Tickets cost €30 and go on Sale on Monday through local outlets and at the Aura Centre, they are also available through ticketmaster midweek and will be subject to an added service charge.

All proceeds after costs will go to the Red Cross with all artists kindly offering their services free of charge.
