Today is the day of the Prom

King John’s Summer Prom kick starts today, Friday July 21st, in front of Trim Castle.  The Prom is a two day event and is the only one of it’s kind in Ireland. The man behind all of this is Eric Lawlor, brother of the late actor Sean Lawlor whom featured in many movies including our very own Braveheart (Malcolm Wallace, father of William Wallace).

The Prom, sponsored by local and not so local businesses, friends of Eric and friends of Sean, is a fundraising event to to raise money for the Sean Lawlor Artist Trust, established to support Irish based professional artists diagnosed with a life threatening illness or aliments.  Sean passed away on October 10th 2009 after a short battle with cancer and it was Sean’s wish that Eric would take up the role of raising funds for artists in need. And so, following many years of fund raising events, Eric and his charity Sean Lawlor Artist Trust are successfully accomplishing Sean’s dying wishes.

King John’s Summer Prom will not only raise funds for the Sean Lawlor Artist Trust, a successful event will also raise funds for many local organisations including Boardsmill GAA, Trim Red Cross, Meath River Rescue along with many more.

All artists involved are giving up their time for free to show their support.

Today is the day of the Prom, so come on out and show your support.  You will be able to get tickets for the event from Ticketmaster or from the Box Office located at StockHouse Restaurant.  You can dress up or dress down, this is a fund raising event so please show your support.
