Catching up again with iconic Irish singer Dana

Dana with husband DamianJimmy Cricket teamed up again with old friend and legendary Irish singer Dana for this year’s Northern Catholic Conference at Liverpool Hope University.

The famous comedian was scheduled to contribute to the conference programme on the Saturday evening, which traditionally has been devoted to a lighter and more relaxed occasion.

What made Jimmy’s visit to Liverpool even more special this time was the fact that also taking part in the line-up was his good friend Dana, who shot to fame as a teenager by winning the Eurovision Song Contest with All Kinds of Everything for Ireland in 1970.

Dana was asked to fly over from her home in Galway to take part in the conference by Jimmy’s son, Fr Frankie Mulgrew, one of the organisers and pictured below talking to the audience.

It made the Saturday night quite a double header of light entertainment featuring Jimmy and Dana.

Jimmy said: “I enjoyed catching up with Dana and her husband, Damian [both are pictured above right], and hope it won’t be too long before I work with her again!”
