Rest in Peace Sean Moore

The Cleveland Irish music legend Sean Moore passed away today.  Arrangements are pending, I will pass on when I know.

Sean is Cleveland’s version of Tommy Makem.  He was THE voice of Irish music in Cleveland for more than forty years.  A favorite son, and absolutely dedicated to preserving, promoting and presenting Irish music, Sean’s class, dedication and gorgeous voice were featured at festivals, weddings, fund-raisers and parties across the area. His performances with Gusty and then with Linda O’Malley, were often the stuff of legend, and earned them a place in Cleveland Irish music history second to none.

Words are not enough Sean.  God Bless. Safe home.

Important Fundraiser

Hello there,

Just a quick note to let you know that Fr. Jim O’Donnell’s fund raiser will take place on Friday January 16, 2009, from 8-Midnight. It will be held again this year at St. Clarence Hall – 30106 Lorain Road, in North Olmsted. The cost
remains a mere $25.00 which includes light snacks and refreshments, PLUS music by the great Andy Cooney.

As always, this promises to be a great time as well as an opportunity for everyone to get together for a good cause. It is hard to believe that this is the 10th year that this event is being held.

For those of you who don’t know, Fr. Jim O’Donnell (along with Sr. Maggie) works with at risk youth in the inner city by taking in foster children and by providing support to people in the East 35th Street neighborhood. This fund raiser helps to defray some of their costs.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you need tickets.

Peace,

John & Keith
