The importance of community is mutual support and contribution, and the Irish music scene has always been generous in rowing in behind their number in need.

Now is one of those times.

Dudley Colley writes:

Gary Sloan has been a stalwart of the Irish underground music scene for as long as I can remember, and I was horrified to hear the very sad news about the medical diagnosis his young son, Eoin has received (Eoin was diagnosed with MLD (Metachromatic Leukodystrophy) in October 2016).

So, seeing as I was already doing the Great Ireland Run 10k this Sunday, I thought it right to try and raise something to help his family. Given the short notice before the event, even if we only manage a couple of quid, it’ll help.

Gonna paraphrase the Thumped.com lads here:

Community is important. Looking out for each other is important. You can sponsor Dudley here. Please do so, then help spread the word.
