Every once in a while a GAA club or a community centre gets the opportunity to host a star.

Now it’s the turn of Bellaghy GAC to have that honour as they welcome the extraordinarily popular Nathan Carter to Pairc Sean de Brún on 22nd March for a night of exhilerating music and fantastic fun.

Nathan will be visiting Bellaghy as part of his nationwide tour and those who are already familiar with some of his work – such as his phenomonally successful version of ‘Wagon Wheel’ – will know that the audience in Bellaghy are in for a rare treat.

Performing a number of his own songs as well as a range of classics, Nathan has transformed the country music scene in Ireland in recent years and has brought a whole new demographic to his shows.

He is popular with both young and old and no matter who you are, one thing that will be guaranteed on the night is great craic and an unforgettable evening’s entertainment.

As if this wasn’t enough there is an extra surprise in store for those who are lucky enough to get tickets as Nathan will be supported by none other than local songstress Niamh McGlinchey who has been wowing the Irish public as a contest on TG4 show, Glór Tire. As part of the show Niamh has been mentored by Nathan and has impressed so much that she is now touring Ireland with him.

It will be a real pleasure for the people of South Derry to welcome one of their own onto the stage on such an occasion and there can be no doubt that the populace of Lavey will have no small measure of pride in her exploits thus far and the continued success that is sure to come in a very successful future career.

There is, therefore, the chance to see a little bit of history in the making for those who attend Bellaghy GAC on the 22nd March. Not only will there be one of the biggest country stars in Ireland right now singing on your doorstep; you will also be able to support and enjoy the inevitable rise of one of our very best talents supporting him.

Everyone is welcome to come along to this once off opportunity which is sure to live long in the memory. Tickets are £20 plus £1 booking fee and are available from Top 40 in Magherafelt, Muldoon’s in Bellaghy and Centra in Toome.
