It’s the perfect Christmas gift for any fans of the band.

Kodaline Charity Calendar for 2018
Anyone who orders the charity calendar online will also be entered into a raffle for a signed copy of the band’s upcoming, new album. The album release date is 2018.
The calendars cost €12 and all proceeds from sales are being donated to HHT Ireland and the Ciara Lawlor Memorial Fund.
The Ciara Lawlor Memorial Fund is raising money for the Mater Heart House, where people with heart conditions or recovering from heart surgery are treated by Mater hospital staff, and First Light which is a charity supporting people affected by the sudden death of a child.
Ciara Lawlor, in whose name the fund was set up, died of sudden arrythmic death while at a Kodaline concert last July 2016.
The Ciara Lawlor Memorial benefits the Mater Heart House and our Family Heart Screening Clinic where relatives of persons who have died because of SADS (sudden arrhythmic death syndrome) are screened for this inherited heart condition.
Lorna Marie Kemble, who produces the calendars and runs a Kodaline Fan Base page, was at the concert where Ciara Lawlor sadly passed away. Following that day, she decided to contribute to the Ciara Lawlor Memorial Fund:
“I was at the concert in Marlay Park on the same day as Ciara and, when I saw her Memorial Fund online, I wanted to help a charity linked to a fellow fan. I obtained permission to use professional photos from Ruth Medjber from a special Dublin shoot of the band with Tourism Ireland and designed and produced the calendars. I thought the causes that the Ciara Lawlor Memorial Fund contributes to were excellent causes and I wanted to help them in her honour.”
HHT Ireland, the other beneficiary from calendar sales, is a charity for people living in Ireland with Hereditary Haemorrhagic Telangiectasia, a genetic disorder that can be deadly. Kodaline have helped fundraise for HHT Ireland ever since the band suffered the personal loss of a friend from this illness.
