The Save Tolka Park campaign presents: A Night of Songs and Stories to Save Tolka Park.
The benefit gig, to take place on March 5th will see musical artists performing as well as a panel of guest speakers from across the Irish football community; recalling their memories and experiences of Tolka Park and their hopes for its future.
The Save Tolka Park campaign is a coalition of local residents, football fans and activists united in opposition to the rezoning, sale and destruction of Tolka Park by private developers. Their aim is to protect its almost 100 years of sporting history and to see Tolka Park become the community asset that it should be.
Musical guests on the night include the incredible For Those I Love. David Balfe exploded on to the international scene in 2021 with his critically acclaimed debut album. Appearances on Jools Holland and Other Voices followed and eventually led to a rapturous sold-out homecoming at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre. Balfe and the music of For Those I Love have are profoundly connected with Tolka Park. http://forthosei.love/
Also appearing on the night will be Dublin indie four-piece Oski Bravo. Having released two EPs and gigged extensively on the Irish summer circuit the band recently completed their self-titled debut album set for release summer 2022. The group will be known to those who frequent Tolka Park as they have played there on several occasions. https://www.facebook.com/OskiBravoBand
