1979 Irish Eurovision Song Contest representative is back. Cahal Dunne, mostly known as “Happy Man” will perform at the McGoff Performing Arts Centre in Williamston, USA, on 21st July at a benefit concert in order to assist the senior centre with their on-going community awareness campaign and to financially help the centre with other projects.
Cahal Dunne won the Irish national selection in 1979 against Tina Reynolds or one of Eurovsion’s all time favourite winners, Johnny Logan. Dunne finished 5th and sold well across Europe and charted at number 3 in his home country, Ireland. From the 80’s, Dunne has been living in the USA and has carried on performing on various occasions, including for former US President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalyn, showing his singing, piano playing and joke telling skills.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by contacting the Williamston Area Senior Center. Cahal Dunne will be on stage from 2pm.
