A concert with a difference takes place at Aras Eanna, Inis Oirr, this Thursay night (8.30pm) when leading exponents of the traditional harp from Ireland and Ukraine, Paul Dooley and Kseniya Rusnak, come together to support Ireland for Ukraine https://irelandforukraine.ie/

Paul and Kseniya began to collaborate together after Kseniya, who is from Kyiv, moved to Lisdoonvarna, Co Clare, in the wake of the Russian invasion of her country earlier this year and we are thrilled to welcome them to Áras Éanna this week.

All money raised on Thursday night will go towards Ireland for Ukraine, a charity set up by a coalition of Irish media organisations to support the people of war-torn Ukraine.

Their repertoire comprises an eclectic selection of traditional music from Ireland and Ukraine. Their first public performances have wowed audiences at the Willie Clancy week in July.

There is no need to book a ticket in advance.

Admission is free, but a donation of €10 is suggested towards Ireland for Ukraine.
