When a couple of friends came together to discuss what they could do after seeing the photograph of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi washed up on a beach in Turkey they could have had no idea what would happen.

Local businessman Pete Mahon saw the image and decided to contact his some of friends involved in the local music scene.

“We contacted the River Inn and they kindly agreed to let us use their bar to host a night of entertainment.

“All of the proceeds raised will be donated to UNHCR - the United Nations Refugee Agency.”

Several different DJs will take to the stage in the River Inn on Saturday and despite the fact the event is sold out there is still the chance for people to donate by visiting www.justgiving.com/peacenikdisco/
