A host of top comedians have announced a stand-up show at the 3Arena to raise money for Seán Cox.
The Dunboyne native was left with life changing injuries after being attacked before a Liverpool match last year.
John Bishop, Dara O'Briain, Michael McIntyre and Deirdre O'Kane are among the comics that will be on stage on Friday the 10th of January.
An Evening of Comedy in Aid of The Sean Cox Trust takes place at 3Arena on 10 January 2020.

Seán, 53 and a father of three, was attacked as he made his way to Anfield to watch the Champions League semi-final between Liverpool FC and AS Roma.
After almost 18 months of treatment in Ireland, Sean is currently undergoing an initial 12-week rehabilitation programme in the north of England in a specialist neurological facility which focuses on developing speech and movement.
