Speaking before departure, Adi Roche sent a message to all attending tomorrow’s concert. A heartfelt thanks to everyone on behalf of the victims and survivors of the Chernobyl disaster. This fantastic concert is not only about raising funds but about compassion from the Irish people, the support from musicians lending their talents and most importantly about sending a message of solidarity & love to the people of Belarus and Ukraine.”
