Ratoath Venue Theatre, Co. Meath
Ireland’s No 1 Ballad Group, the Dublin City Ramblers will play a fundraising gig for Polio Survivors Ireland.
Known for ‘Dublin in the Rare Oul Times’, ‘Punch & Judy Man’ and ‘Flight of Earls’, the Ramblers will ‘Raise the Roof’ of the Venue while supporting the only charity providing help to those who had polio as babies or young children.
Most people think of polio as gone, however polio survivors are still here and living with the impact of polio decades after the original infection. They may have Late Effects of Polio, also known as Post Polio Syndrome, which can cause symptoms such as sleep impairment, fatigue, weakness, muscle and joint pain, severe intolerance to cold, speech difficulties, difficulty swallowing, and respiratory problems. As they age, survivors may need the support of aids and appliances, calipers, leg braces or tailored footwear, to help them maintain their independence and mobility.
We provide practical help and support, therapies such as respite breaks and physiotherapy and sometimes more importantly a listening ear. Polio survivors have overcome adversity but still need your help. We look forward to a great night, of craic agus ceol all to support a fantastic cause.
The Venue Theatre does have steps to the seats. We have reserved the first four rows for those who either cannot manage any steps, or who might manage one or two steps.
