Dundalk as it Happens
The Coronas donate Spirit Store gig proceeds to charity
Leading Irish band The Coronas played a two hour set to an exclusive audience in The Spirit Store in Dundalk last night with all proceeds from tickets going towards a local charity.
The four piece, who recently topped the Irish album charts for their first time with their new release Trust the Wire, played the George’s Quay venue as part of their preparations for their biggest ever show this Saturday in Kilmainham.
Lead singer Danny O’Reilly revealed the band were rehearsing at The Spirit Store anyway so decided to put on an intimate gig. He said that the band did not want to profit from the performance though and would be donating all proceeds to the rape crisis centre.
The band posed for pictures with fans throughout the gig and even took a young follower on stage. Beforehand they also spoke with staff and customers in McGeough’s Bar in Roden Place.
