A Night For Pieta House takes place at The Olympia Theatre this November, featuring a line-up of some great Irish acts.
A special charity night has been organised for Sunday, 1st November, at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, to raise much needed funds for Pieta House. The evening will feature a number of well-known stars of the Irish music scene from recent times.
Speaking about the show Brian McEvoy of Pieta House said “We are extremely grateful to all the acts for once again choosing to perform for Pieta House at this wonderful event. Events of this kind are essential not only to fundraise, but also to raise awareness of suicide and self-harm in our communities. Last year’s event was a wonderful success and we have no doubt that it will be once again this year.”
Confirmed to play so far are In Tua Nua, Paddy Moloney of the Chieftains, Blink, The Pale, PictureHouse, Friends of Emmet, and The Songs in the Key of D Choir. Members of Cactus World News and The Fountainhead and other special guests will also appear at the annual Pieta House benefit show.
Kevin Hines, author of the best seller “Cracked, Not Broken”, whose experience formed the basis of The Friends of Emmet single “Coming Apart”, will also be in attendance. The Guest of Honour on the night will be the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Críona Ní Dhálaigh.

Pieta House provides a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm. The centre opened over nine years ago in Lucan in County Dublin and since then has helped over 18,000 people. Eight further centres have been established, three in the greater Dublin area – Ballyfermot, Tallaght and Finglas, and five others in Limerick, Cork, Tipperary, Galway and Kerry. From humble beginnings, Pieta House has grown to almost 180 therapists and administration staff, and the demand for the service sadly hasn’t let up.
A Night For Pieta House takes place at The Olympia Theatre on Sunday, 1st November, with all proceeds going to Pieta House Suicide & Self Harm Crisis Centre.
