Kodaline play secret charity gig in their hometown of Swords

Money went to HHT Ireland, a charity founded in memory of young Swords man.

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE, and at this point almost everyone has piled home for Christmas, including the lads from Irish band Kodaline.

Last night they played a secret gig in a pub in their hometown of Swords as part of the Chandelier Sessions, a night dedicated to emerging artists.

They played to a full house, along with Irish artists Orla Gartland, Gavin James, Hudson Taylor and others, with all of the €5 cover charge going to HHT Ireland – a total of €5,000.

HHT Ireland is a charity set up in memory of Grace Nolan and Paul Woods, who was from Swords, both of whom died suddenly as a result of the condition.  It aims to raise awareness and provide funding for research and the treatment of the disorder.
