WISH YOU WERE HERE
Presenting ‘Wish You Were Here’ – a free online concert to be streamed on Facebook Live!
An online music event raising much-needed funds for Irish Support Agencies in Australia during the coronavirus pandemic.
In the days and weeks following the pandemic reaching Australia, it became clear mass job losses would occur across the country. There are almost 18,000 Irish temporary visa holders in Australia, and many of these visa holders are unable to access Australian Government assistance of any kind, leaving them in financial crisis.
Returning to Ireland is not a straightforward option for those who have lost their livelihoods as a result of the pandemic, and many will be seeking urgent support just to cover basic expenses.
Troubadour Presents along with the Irish Embassy, Consulate & several Irish support agencies across Australia & in Ireland have joined forces to bring together some of Ireland’s biggest names in music & comedy together for a very special concert to be streamed on Facebook Live.
