|Colum and Ben Sands|
Colum and Ben Sands were in the Trim Castle Hotel last night performing in aid of the Trim Multiple Sclerosis Centre. From Rostrevor in County Down they tour the world and Ben has recently returned from Germany while Colum was in New Zealand. Noted for their wit and storytelling as well as their fine ballads both are excellent musicians and their stage presence and interaction with the crowd is of the finest. Always entertaining they were ably supported by others such as Brian Reynolds from Cavan, Frank Foley from Trim, Matt Gilsenan, Trim and some fair old recitations from poets Patsy McDermott and another piece I believe from Kathleen Lucas. All the proceeds were in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Centre and the event was organized by Eamon Reilly.
