Signed guitar to be auctioned on eBay to raise funds for Aslan frontman

21 Mar 2014

eBay will from today auction a guitar signed by various Irish musicians, from Bono and The Edge to Damian Dempsey and Glen Hansard, to raise money for Aslan singer Christy Dignam’s cancer care.

Other signatories include Bressie, Danny O’Reilly, Mark Feehily, and members of Aslan and Kodaline.  

All proceeds of the auction will go towards Dignam’s cancer care fund to cover the cost of medical bills.

eBay said it will also be waiving insertion fees.  

Last June, Irish rock royalty came together in the Olympia in Dublin to support Dignam and to perform some of Aslan’s greatest hits. 

The guitar being auctioned appeared on stage and was signed, live, by musicians in front of screaming fans.

The auction will go live at 5pm today.
