Ábalta Special School are hosting a charity ball in the beautiful Ardilaun hotel on Saturday the 8th of December.  Keith Duffy, former band member of Boyzone and star in Coronation Street will be attending the ball; Keith has spent a significant amount of time raising awareness for Autism and is very passionate about enhancing people’s awareness of Autism in Ireland.

Entertainment on the night will feature previous You’re a Star contestant,  Mickey Joe Heart plus Joe Harte, Frank Naughton, Converse Allstars, and My Fellow Sponges, and many more!

The ball will raise much needed funds for Ábalta Special School, which relocated to new premises in Parkmore East, Parkmore in January. The money raised will enable Ábalta Special School to provide specialist teaching and support to children and families living with Autism.

“This is going to be a great night of celebration” said Michelle McGuire from the event committee. “We have so much to be grateful for in what we have in Ábalta School, its success over the last 10 years and all that the pupils have achieved. In these tough times it is even more important to acknowledge and celebrate the positives out there and this is what we intend to do on the night”.
