Last Thursday 25th of June, the McCabe family found themselves homeless as a result of their home ‘Corranny Cottage’ being burnt to the ground in an unfortunate accidental house fire.
The family who live a few miles outside Clones are well known in the area for their artistic talents and as recently as 14th of June, Patrick B Mc Cabe performed as part of the ‘Lounge’ entertainment at Monaghan’s first arts fair the ARTs Lounge and also performed at Monaghan Arts Network October Showcase event.
Monaghan Arts Network has brought a plethora of acts together to perform at a Gala Fund Raising Showcase in the The New Garage Theatre, Monaghan on Wednesday 8th of July at 7.30pm. The event will feature a large number of the network’s previous music, poetic and dance acts, all of whom have pledged their talents in order to raise funds to help the McCabe family rebuild their lives.
Many visual artists were also keen to do what they could to contribute and a number of previous showcase acts have donated artwork to be auctioned off at a future event. Monaghan Arts Network is appealing to the Community to attend this Gala event and contribute to the fund.
