Top Irish musicians and entertainers have been asked to consider taking part in a cross-border telethon in aid of the victims of the Asian disaster.
Former MEP Dana Rosemary Scallon has approached RTE and the BBC to propose a dual charity concert in Dublin and Belfast.
Dana has said that it is important to harness public goodwill in the initial stages of the catastrophe.
Ms Scallon said that she has spoken to representatives of various artistes and “without exception, they all want to do more”.
She said the help we can all provide to the victims will be an investment in the future of all those affected.
