A local woman is bringing prose, poetry and music together this weekend in an effort to raise money for Clondalkin Animal Aid this Friday.

Kasey Shelley is a spoken word artist from Clondalkin. She created Clondalkin Unplugged to raise money for the non-profit voluntary group.

Clondalkin Unplugged kicks off at 8pm in the Steering Wheel pub and will feature over a dozen local musicians, poets and writers.

Shelley (27) said: “There’s a lot of talented poets and writers in Clondalkin. This is a great opportunity to show their talent and raise money for Animal Aid. All of the money is going directly to them.”

Local musicians such as Michał Dobosz and writers’ groups such as the  Library After Dark writers’ cafe and the Mill Lane writers’ group.

She added: “We will also have a raffle on the night with some fantastic prizes including from pet shops, cafes, restaurants and even So Sue Me!”

According to Shelley, entry is free but there is a suggested donation of €5.
