posting this here to express on behalf of the band our heartfelt sympathies to Steve, Joe, Vinnie and Amy at the loss of their little girl Estlin. :/
Last Wed morning my youngest brother Vincent and his almost 4yr. old daughter Estlin were involved in a terrible car crash in Co. Clare. Vincent is in hospital ...in Dublin with massive brain injuries and still hasn't opened his eyes. At around 9pm last night little Estlin's life support was turned off and she passed away in her mother Amy's arms, who is also nursing their 12-week old baby Mannix. Its a tragedy beyond belief and we are all in bits. Please don't send any flowers, but consider donating something, no matter how small, to this fund set up by the community of Ennistymon to help Amy and Vinnie through the difficult times ahead and Vincent's rehabilitation. Have a look at the story on the link below. Vinnie and Amy are much loved by everyone in West Clare and beyond. Please share this with anyone who might know Vinnie & Amy.
Glen Hansard and Damien Dempsey have led a small army of some big names (Jim Sheridan, Hozier, Christy Moore, Liam O Maonlaí,) and supporters to #Occupy a NAMA owned building in #Dublin to help use it to provide shelter for homeless people this Christmas.
The Irish Housing Network says it led the action at the NAMA owned building in order to provide accommodation for the city's homeless.
The #HomeSweetHome group includes actor #JimSheridan, a six-time Academy Award nominee; Love/Hate actor John Connors and high profile musicians including: Hozier, Christy Moore, Liam O Maonlaí, Dean Scurry, as well as members of the Villagers and Kodaline.
