ASLAN’S CHRISTY DIGNAM TO HEADLINE BENEFIT NIGHT IN FIGHT AGAINST THE BIG C

Aslan star Christy Dignam is set to headline a special benefit night in Howth which will assist local woman, Trish Dowd, in her battle against Ovarian Cancer. ‘Fight against the Big C’ will take place in K2, The Summit Inn, Howth on Friday November 24th and features a jam-packed music line-up. Dignam who has also faced his own ongoing battles against the big C will join a host of leading local Dublin bands such as The Guilty Party, Mannheim Rockets, The Sketch Pistols and Nuff Said.
Having been diagnosed just two months ago, the single mother of three is now undergoing intensive weekly Chemotherapy sessions. The special night has been organised by close friends and members of the Howth Community.
Most recent statistics reveal that Ireland has one of the highest incidence and mortality rates of ovarian cancer in Europe. It is the sixth most common form of cancer in women and affects, on average, just 360 people each year in Ireland. There is currently no screening programme for ovarian cancer and it is not detectable by the cervical screen test.
Up until her diagnosis, Trish, whose youngest children Caolfhionn (19) and Rowan (10) who are fully reliant on their mom, worked fulltime. Being diagnosed with ovarian cancer has been one of the worst experiences of my life, but it has also provided many positives. I have been overwhelmed by the support and encouragement which I have received from so many people. The Gary Kelly Foundation and [SCHOOL] in particular have been amazing.
The process from my initial appointment with the GP to the diagnosis has been a whirlwind. This particular form of cancer is genetic and it means that all the females in my family including my daughter Rowan (10) will need to be tested” says Trish.
Trish is keen to encourage women to be aware of silent symptoms which can be vague and non-specific in the early stages; Persistent bloating, lack of appetite, feeling full quickly, abdominal and pelvic pain which can be felt on an almost daily basis.
 ‘Fight against the Big C’ will be a night to remember for Irish music fans as Christy Dignam of Aslan will guest with ‘The Guilty Party’ featuring Paul Byrne and Jack Dublin of Tua Nua. Also on the night will be ‘Hooligan’ who have just released a single with Christy, ‘Mannheim Rockets’ featuring Matt Spalding formerly of Tua Nua, ‘Nuff Said’ with Lee Page and ‘The Sketch Pistols’ a comedy punk band whose members include Gary Cooke of Apres Match, John Colleary of the Savage Eye and Frank Kearns of Cactus World News.

Tickets are just €15.00 and can be purchased from The Summit Inn, The Country Market Howth Village or on the night or from Nicole Dunne, 0860471189,  howthcuisine@outlook.com

Doors open from 8.30pm on Friday, November 24th and raffle spot-prizes will include hotel breaks away, dinner vouchers and lots more. Early booking is advised.
