Aisling is grateful for the support it receives from the Irish Government's Emigrant Support programme.
London's Evening Standard gave the recent Aisling benefit gig a great review - with especial praise for our patron (saint) Ardal O'Hanlon. The review was published in the paper and on their website (scan of the newspaper article above).
O'Hanlon's stand-up is as original and offbeat as ever, says Bruce Dessau
Bert Griffin the guv'nor at the Stag's Head pub in Camden Town was one of Aisling's greatest supporters in the early days of the project.
In 2004 the pub closed leaving many a heartbroken local and regular with nowhere to go. Well at least for one night only we can all get together again at another legendary Camden pub - The Golden Lion in Royal College St. Conor Griffin, Bert's son is organising a Stags Head reunion on *23rd February* (not the 2nd as first thought) and is inviting all to attend.
We have just added to an already top notch comedy bill, the very funny London Irish comedian John Moloney, who went down a storm at our gig last year....
Plus an amazing line up of prizes for our world-renowned raffle...(so don't leave at the interval)
1. Weekend cottage holiday in Ireland donated by Trident holidays including car travel donated by Irish Ferries.
2. Framed limited edition print of UK Champion Jockey Richard Hughes, 'Super 7' at Windsor by renowned equine artist Elizabeth Armstrong
3. three course meal for 2 at the Hard Rock Café.
Aisling has a great line-up lined-up for this years comedy benefit:
Leading civil engineering and building contractor J. Murphy & Sons
(By Alex McDonnell ) Jim came with us on our last trip to Donegal when he had a surprise encounter with his brother for a few days in Monaghan. This year John had arranged for Jim to stay with his sister in Cavan. On our way to the ferry we picked Jim up from his home in a quiet little street in Cricklewood, a nondescript terrace off the main road where all of the traffic in London seems to be ploughing through on its way to the M1.
