To help celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Irish Youth Foundation Paul Brady and Gavin Glass have recorded a beautiful version of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young”. The song is part of a collection of cover versions by Irish artists, recently recorded as part of the Windmill Lane Sessions hosted on All funds raised from this project will go directly to disadvantaged children’s and youth projects all over Ireland.

The other acts include Kodaline, Ham Sandwich, Fight Like Apes, Damien Dempsey, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Aslan, Ryan Sheridan and Mary Coughlan.

Priced at €10,the CD is for sale in all Centra and Starbucks and Stores throughout the country. It is also available to download from iTunes.

As the ethos of the Irish Youth is that Achievement Starts with Opportunity, we asked people who have achieved success in their lives to take part in the video and to hold up a photo of themselves as a young person. We had a fantastic response with Leo Varadkar, Rob Kearney, Ryan Tubridy, Pádraig Harrington, Jim Sheridan, Shane Lowry, Louis Walsh, Miriam O'Callaghan, Damien Dempsey, Pat Kenny, Micheál Martin, Christy Dignam, Norah Casey and many others participating…. See how many you can recognise from their younger selves!

The album is a perfect Christmas gift, so please support and pick up a copy in one of our amazing partner stores – Centra & Starbucks!

Thank you and happy listening!
