Music track to support Irish paralympians


‘These are the Days’ raising funds for Ireland’s Paralympic athletes

‘These are the Days’ a new song by Irish songwriters Fran Stone and Pat Cushe and performed by well-known artist has been released to raise money for Ireland’s Paralympic athletes competing in London in August.

Sometimes it is nice to give a bit back and that’s exactly what songwriters Fran Stone and Pat Cushe thought when they had written the victory song ‘These Are The Days’. “The lyrics can be applied to any sport, situation or indeed any personal belief and they hold a strong, uplifting message. The music has a distinctive Celtic vibe with the inclusion of Uilleann pipes, the tempo is lively and the tune is catchy,” explains Pat.

Fran and Pat decided that they would seek like-minded high-profile vocalists to record their song and give all download revenues to Paralympics Ireland.

They recruited Radio and TV broadcaster Paddy McKenna, who is also lead guitarist and singer with the band Storyfold; Buttevant, Co. Cork singer and pianist Nollaig O’Connor, who was a worthy finalist on the Voice Of Ireland; Renowned Irish footballer and huge sports supporter Paul McGrath, who has released an album and book in his own right; All Ireland Karaoke champion and You’re A Star winner, Wexford tenor David O’Connor and well known RTE racing presenter and ex-auctioneer Robert Hall.

“The blend of their vocals works very well and we chose to name the collaboration ‘Voices In Victory’ which is appropriate for both the song’s message and the Paralympians!” says Fran.

“Everyone involved with These Are The Days is immensely proud to be supporting our elite Irish Paralympic athletes. There is a team of 49 men and women representing Ireland in London in August, all of whom are winners and highly accomplished sports-people at the top of their game. Their achievements in the face of adversity are truly outstanding. We may be in the grip of a recession but two things guaranteed to survive are sport and music. We are delighted to support both!”

‘These Are The Days’ from Voices In Victory, is released for digital download from CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes in support of all Irish Olympians competing in London 2012 with all download monies going to Paralympics Ireland. It is available for airplay on all Irish radio stations so please request!
