Update on O'Flaherty's Irish Channel

September 12, 2005 O’Flaherty’s New Orleans Rescue Concert Hurricane Katrina has damaged “O’Flaherty’s Irish Channel Pub” in the legendary French Quarter. O’Flaherty’s is owned and operated by famed Irish singer and musician, Danny O’Flaherty of the “Celtic Folk”. Danny and his family are safe and we are glad to report that Danny’s business has suffered limited structural damage. However, the business will be closed for months, affecting not only his family but the families of those employed at his establishment. In addition, Danny’s livelihood as a singer, musician and educator of Celtic culture in New Orleans is on hold for the foreseeable future. October 16th from 4 until 9pm. “Pat Troy’s Ireland’s Own” in Alexandria Virginia will be hosting a fundraiser with all proceeds being donated to help Danny, his family, and those employed by him.
