The Dublin City Ramblers have thrilled audiences worldwide with their unique blend of Ballads, Folk, Humour, Wit and foot-tapping music. Their impressive career has spanned more than 35 years, with over 30 albums, top ten hits, several awards for best Ballad/Folk Group and, to top it all off, 8 Gold Albums. It is certainly no wonder that they are classed as Ireland’s Number One Group!

They have performed at most Major Festivals worldwide, including headlining The Milwaukee Irish Festival, The Cleveland Irish Festival, Hollywood Irish Fest, Florida, Miami Irish Fest, Ft Lauderdale and most USA, Canadian & other festivals throughout the Globe!
Their music has also taken them all over Europe to rapturous receptions.

They have performed at every major venue in Ireland and abroad, including Dublin’s National Stadium, National Concert Hall, Cork’s Opera House, England’s Royal Albert Hall, New York’s Carnegie Hall and any other venue you care to mention.

They have been honoured on several occasions by being given the Keys to the cities of Ft Lauderdale and Hollywood (Florida) and Moorehead, Kentucky.

They are in the Hall Of Fame in The Helen Stairs Theatre in Florida, and have also received The Arkansas Traveller Award, all normally reserved for visiting dignitaries.

Among their many ardent fans are the beautiful actress Maureen O’Hara, star of that magical movie, “The Quiet Man”, ex-Republic of Ireland managers, Eoin Hand, Johnny Giles & Jack Charlton, and a host of well known celebrities.

Sean has kept The Ramblers (As they are affectionately known), going throughout the years, and they are now stronger than ever. With major tours of Ireland, England, Europe, USA, Canada & Australia lined up, and now to Thai Rock, in Rockaway Beach, NY.

Sandy Disaster Assistance Appeal for Thai Rock and Uninsured Rockaway Businesses

Dear Friend,

This is Robert, owner of Thai Rock, a mom and pop restaurant, mine and my wife’s dream, opened in June 2010 and located in Rockaway Beach, NY.  I believe we are a good example of a small business, the type politicians refer to.  During our busy season, we employ 40 or more people and this summer coming, I am hoping our employment ranks will grow even more.  That’s 40 families that put food on their tables because of Thai Rock and we all need your help.  The restaurant was devastated from the wrath of hurricane Sandy on Oct 29th & 30th 2012.  The entire restaurant needs to be gutted and replaced along with the replacement of all the coolers, draft system, ice machine, ovens, and practically all other equipment, food stock, computers and practically everything else in the restaurant.

It was very challenging getting our doors open in 2010, we put everything we had into this business and more.  We struggled a great deal in our first year to keep our doors open.  This, our 2nd summer, we ran better, got a handle on many issues and overall enjoyed the business more.  We have made excellent and lasting inroads in connecting with our beautiful community, now devastated by hurricane Sandy, and we’ve forged amazing bonds and made great friends since opening.

Every charity that knocked on our door we supported, and now, the table is turned, and I am asking for support to help us and others rebuild.

We, along with the great majority of business here, had no flood insurance.  I hope there will be FEMA and other government support, but, as I understand it, any government support we do receive will be loan based and likely not enough to get through all the expenses while creating added financial pressures.

If you can find it in your heart and wallet to help a small business overcome a natural disaster, I promise your contribution will be well used and I will not take more money than I need to re-open my business.  Any excess monies will go directly to other devastated business here in the Rockaways.  I will provide progress reports that will include photos, status and contribution distributions.  If enough monies are raised, I will provide voting capabilities for you, the contributor, to help select which other business to support.

No contribution is too small and I would be most appreciative if you would pass this on to anyone who would be willing to help.

This is a sincere and earnest request for help.  You can validate our business credentials at the New York Times, Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, City Search, Yelp, Google, Urban Spoon, TimeOut, Grub Street, Trip Advisor, All Menus, Dun and Bradstreet and many other reputable sources.

Please contact me directly with any questions. At present, power and Internet service is very limited as I have power only though the use of a generator for which gas is almost impossible to get.

Thank you from the entire Thai Rock Family and be well,
