On June 9th 2017 the cream of Waterford Theatre and Entertainment gathered together in Waterford’s historic Theatre Royal to pay tribute to the late great Billy McCarthy. An amazing line up included Des Manahan, Richie Hayes, Andrew Holden, Jim Nolan, Donna Roche, Vanessa Whelan, Vicki Graham, Jamie Murphy, Greta Rochford, Clodagh Power, Dermot Keyes, Carrie Crowley, the Bilberry Goats, Madrigallery and Intonations.
The choice of music on the night was made up of Billy’s favourites with many of his friends singing these songs with the night culminating in an epic performance of My City Of Music, Denny Corcoran’s Waterford Anthem featuring over 80 singers accompanied by an 11 piece orchestra. Speakers on the night included WLR’s Des Whelan and Billy’s brother Ronan McCarthy. The proceeds of the night were donated to the Holy Ghost House, a favourite charity of Billy’s.
