A benefit for St. Bridid's featureing the Eamonn Ryan band, readings by local artists(among them Peter Quinn and Malachy McCourt), and an art auction with works by local artists will take place at Solas Bar, 232 East 9th St, New York(between 2nd and 3rd Avenues), Saturday, May 12, 2007, from 6 to 10 pm. A donation of $20 is suggested.
The Lower East Side Famine Church has been closed since 2001 due to structural irregularities and was almost destroyed by the Archdiocese last summer before a New York State judge enacted a temporary restraining order. Interested in historic preservation? This is a fight that's been going on for years.
