So says the chairperson of the Good Shepherd homeless centre in Kilkenny.

They’re holding a major fundraising concert this evening.

The Good Shepherd Choir will be performing alongside Father Ray Kelly in St Canice’s Cathedral.

Chairperson Liam King says they’re hoping they’ll be able to get a full house.
