The late Mick Cuffe’s CD and tape which was launched just a few weeks ago has already raised over €15,000 from sales just in the Westport and Castlebar areas alone. A remarkable achievement from a local artist.
The record entitled ‘Mick Cuffe Sings For You’, will be available in other Mayo towns over the coming weeks where there is a huge demand. It was just not possible to cover the outlying areas up to now and to press enough copies, much to the disappointment of many people who dearly wanted to get their hands on a copy of the disk.
Now all that’s been taken care of, the album will be available in local shops in all towns in Mayo in the New Year. All monies from the sales go to the Cancer Care Fund. The album was a runaway success over the Christmas.
The legend may be gone but he is not forgotten.
