The Claddagh Rogues will perform a free lunchtime concert at Cork University Hospital on 2 October 2017 to celebrate Mental Health Month. The Claddagh Rogues are currently touring their new album For the Record across Ireland, with songs that speak openly of homelessness, addiction, mental health difficulties and recovery. 

World Mental Health Day falls on 10 October each year, with the aim of promoting awareness and destigmatising mental health issues.

About The Claddagh Rogues

James O’Flynn and his folk band The Claddagh Rogues have battled their fair share of demons to consistently produce passionate music rooted in the troubles of life. The Claddagh Rogues were born from an artist-in-resident project at the Cork Simon Community in 2007, led by clinical nurse and musician Kevin O’Shanahan. They have produced two EPs and their first album, For the Record, launched at the First Fortnight festival in January 2017 with guest performer John Spillane. The album pays tribute to Claddagh Rogues co-founder Mags Kelly, who recently passed away.
