Eamonn Dillon is a gifted uilleann piper from Belfast (now Miami) and over the years many of us have been fortunate to get to know him and his music. Recently, however, he has suffered a life changing cardiac experience. Although the doctors were able to save his life, the surgeries and hospital stay have burdened him with substantial medical expenses. Like many working musicians, Eamonn has no health insurance and needs your help.

If you want additional information, please email Peter Maguire at chucki80@hotmail.com.
Passing along recent update from Cillian Vallely:
...this is just to remind you about the piping benefit concert next Thursday in New York and to let you know that Paddy Keenan has very kindly agreed to come and play also. Please pass this onto anyone you know that might be interested. "An Evening of Irish Piping" featuring Paddy Keenan, Jerry O'Sullivan, Cillian Vallely & Ivan Goff on pipes as well as Tony deMarco on fiddle and Eamon O'Leary on guitar. All proceeds will go towards a benefit fund for Eamon Dillon.

Many of you don't live in New York so if you'd like to make a contribution but can't attend the event, you can send a donation (cheques payable to Eamon Dillon) and mail it to:
