Wicklow singers video on Gaza children goes viral

A fan of Wicklow singer Luan Parle made contact with her last Sunday and asked would it be possible to put a video to a song which featured on her last album “Full Circle” to raise awareness of the death of so many children in Gaza.

Feargal Kavanagh from Aughrim said he felt horrified after seeing images of dead children and the song “Mercy Cry” came into his head.

Luan put out a message on social media asking would anyone be able to match the harrowing images with the song, Ben O’Sullivan answered the call and the results can be seen below.

Some 40,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed during the month-long conflict with Israel that has displaced nearly half a million Palestinians and killed nearly 1,900 — more than 400 of them children, according to Gaza’s Public Works Ministry and Health Ministry.
