Musicians Light a Fire for C.R.Y.

(Cardiac Risk in the Young)

A group of fourteen Cork based musicians have joined forces to do a live recording in Mr. Bradleys on Barrack St, as part of The Fireside Sessions in aid of C.R.Y. (Cardiac Risk in the Young). The recording is a tribute to Ciara O'Connor (aged 15) who died suddenly on December 8th 2006 of a cardiac arrest. Ciara was full of life, love and potential and she is the inspiration for this project “Le Grá do Chiara”. The CD cover and inlay feature a series of drawings/paintings by Ciara.

The album is currently available to download/purchase from, from Mr. Bradleys, Barrack St, Cork; Pro Musica, Cork; Bandon Books, Bandon, Co. Cork; Scannell's Pharmacy, Ballineen, Co. Cork (Ciara's home town). An official CD launch/Gig will be held on December 4th, in Mr. Bradleys to mark this event. This CD is the perfect Christmas stocking filler at €10, and all proceeds will go directly to C.R.Y.

The line up of artists include a fine collection of Cork's most talented singer/songwriters, musicians and poets who gave their time and talent freely to make this album. The recording features:-

  • Annette Buckley; Sean Kelleher; Ciara O'Flynn; Fintan & Sarah Lucy
  • Karina & Pat Healy; Niamh Murphy; Mike Lyons; Lynda Cullen
  • Terence O'Connor; Siân Brown; NoLand Folk; Rab Urquhart
  • Deirdre Tunney & Michael Daly; Cathal O'Connor

The recording took place, as part of a special Fireside Session, on Saturday October 23rd. The Fireside Sessions are weekly gigs that take place on Wednesday nights in Mr Bradleys, Barrack Street, Cork showcasing emerging and established artists in a relaxed candlelit atmosphere, in the warmth of an open fire.
