Barretstown, the serious fun camp for sick children, is running a series of talks with well-known celebrities.
Barretstown was founded in 1994 by the great Hollywood actor Paul Newman, modelled on his renowned Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut. The camp caters for seriously ill children and their families, and relies entirely on private donations and fundraising activities.
Part of the fundraising effort this year sees Barretstown arrange a series of talks with celebrities and well-known personalities. As they say ‘a series of conversations with people we thought you’d like to hear’.
The first talk in the series is an evening with Roy Keane, who will be in conversation with Matt Cooper of Today FM. This takes place on Thursday, 25th June in the Olympia Theatre in Dublin.
The evening will also include a Q&A session and a video retrospective of Roy’s playing career, from his formative years with Cobh Ramblers to his professional career with Nottingham Forest, Manchester United, and Celtic, his time playing for Ireland, and his Managerial career with Sunderland, Ipswich and Ireland.
Tickets for the event cost €39.50 + fees where applicable, and are available online, from Ticketmaster outlets, from the Olympia Theatre Box Office, and by calling Ticketmaster at The Olympia Phone Bookings on 0818 719 330.
All proceeds in aid of Barretstown.
