The Irish section of the global event will support both The Alzheimer Society of Ireland and Western Alzheimers.
A selection of prominent Irish and international musicians are set to play the Rock Against Dementia Online Concert this Friday, November 27. Kicking off at 8pm Irish time, and featuring performances from Sharon Shannon, The Riptide Movement and Pearse McGloughlin, the Irish section of the live-streamed music event will support both the Alzheimer Society of Ireland and Western Alzheimer.
The event has been organised by the Salthill Rotary Club in collaboration with Rotary Clubs in Mexico, Brazil and the US – with musicians from all four countries performing to support Alzhemiers and Dementia organisations in each country.
Both the Alzheimer Society of Ireland and Western Alzheimers provide regional dementia-specific services and supports advocating for the rights and needs of all people living with dementia and their carers.
As well as accepting donations here, the event aims to raise awareness about the devastating impact Covid-19 has had on both Irish organisations' ability to fundraise this year.
