On Thursday, September 13, the Edenderry Entertainers Commemorative Committee are to host an evening to launch their CD A Tribute to Kevin Farrell: A Life Well Lived.

Kevin was the the Founding member of Edenderry’s Entertainers Committee and for many years the driving force behind it’s many fundraising activities.

When Kevin passed away the whole town came out to pay their respects and it became very obvious to us just how important this man had been to so many families and individuals in and around the area.

This is a 22 track CD featuring music by Joe Dolan, Foster & Allen and a massive selection of local artists.

All of the songs on this album we given to be used without any hesitation and every artist featured on it were delighted to be associated with such a worthwhile project.

The inlay card contains tributes from just some of the many wellknown personalities that regarded Kevin as their friend, people such as Seamus Darby, Johnny Logan And Larry Cunningham.

A Life Well Lived is a showcase of local talent. Even the painting on the cover is the work of renowned painter Willie Redmond

All proceeds from the sale of the CD are to go to The Offaly Hospice and The Edenderry Lourdes Fund at the request of Kevin’s family.

The production and printing of the album was all sponsored by local businesses and friends of Kevin and for this we would like to express our gratitude.

A Life Well Lived will be available to buy on the night for 10 euros.

Many local shops have offered to sell this CD so if you can’t make it to the launch night they can be bought all around Edenderry.
