Irish Concert at HPL

HAMPSTEAD - If you’re Irish or wish you were Irish or just love Irish music come to the Hampstead Public Library on Tues., March 11, to get in the mood. Paul Carroll, Dublin native and Irish Balladeer, will be singing Irish songs and telling stories about the “auld sod”, at 7:00 p.m.

Paul Carroll now lives in Derry. Since his retirement from Gillette he has appeared at many area locations over the past few years. He recently released an album of Irish classics that his fans around the world have been waiting for. It’s called “The Road You Take”, a most appropriate title given his travels throughout the world prior to settling in New Hampshire.

In addition to playing and singing at public venues such as the Derry Public Library, Hampstead Academy, The Coffee Factory and the Atkinson Country Club, Carroll entertains at area assisted living and Alzheimer’s facilities in honor of his mother. She was his musical inspiration as a youngster but she developed Alzheimer’s in her later years. When Paul returned to Ireland to visit, she didn’t always recognize him but she knew all the songs he sang and played for her.

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available. Following the program, members of the Friends will hold their regular monthly meeting.

THRIFT SHOP SALE - If you love to save money and like to plan ahead for next year, now is the time to visit the Hollyhock Thrift Shop downstairs at the Hampstead Public Library. The annual end of winter half price sale will start March 11th and end on March 22nd. The shop will then be closed for restocking with spring clothing until it re-opens on April 1st, just in time for shopping for Easter finery. Donations of good quality, clean, wearable spring and summer clothing for men, women and children may be left at the library during its open hours. The Thrift Shop’s hours are Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.
