The Whelan's gig celebrating Earth Day is in support of Friends of the Earth's work to make sure Ireland does its fair share to contain climate change. Friends of the Earth is calling for a strong climate change law, with no loopholes, that makes the Government's commitment to cut emissions by 33% by 2020 legally binding.

Friends of the Earth Director, Oisín Coghlan said:
"We're thrilled to have such a great line up for this year's Friends of the Earth Earth Day gig. Earth Day is a chance to celebrate humanity's only home and to build the movement to protect it for future generations.

"The biggest challenge we face is containing climate change. If everyone polluted like the Irish we'd need three planets. This Earth Day we'll be redoubling our efforts to make sure the climate law we've persuaded the Government to prepare is one we can all be proud of."
