2021 Calendars Now Available To Order
This year is the eigth year of making the Kodaline Calendars to help raise money for Charity. The calendar contains photographs of the lads performing at various concerts in the last couple of years. The proceeds of the sales get shared between two charities. It was important for me to select charities close to the guys and the fans. Naturally they had to be in Ireland too. Ireland is a beautiful country and her people are special.
More details below.
1. HHT Ireland
As most people will be aware, Kodaline's album 'In A Perfect World' is dedicated to a dear friend of theirs Woodzi (Paul Woods). He was diagnosed with HHT at the age of 13. Unfortunately a microscopic AVM in his lung ruptured and he passed away in June 2012. He was 22 years old. HHT Ireland was set up afterwards to help raise awareness and to help fund research and treatment in Ireland and abroad. More information can be found here :- HHT Ireland
Half the proceeds from sales will go to HHT Ireland in memory of Woodzi.
2. Ciara Lawlor Memorial Fund
The other half of the proceeds will be donated to Ciara Lawlor Memorial Fund.
The Ciara Lawlor Memorial has been set up in memory of a beautiful daughter, sister and friend who has left a huge void in their lives. She sadly passed away of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Sydrome (SADS) whilst attending a Kodaline concert. In memory of Ciara the memorial helps raise funds for charities close to the Lawlors' hearts.
The charity donations under Ciara Lawlor Memorial Fund are being donated to CRY.ie Cardiac Risk in the Young.
The CRY Charity has three main objectives in the work that we do:
- To raise awareness of the condition known as Sudden Cardiac Death or Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) through media campaigns and information meetings.
- To provide free counselling and support for families affected by sudden death or cardiac conditions.
- To support the Centre for Cardiovascular Risk in Younger Persons (CRYP).
The calendars are:
- Premium range printed on 250gsm silk card throughout
- A4 portrait (210mm x 297mm)
- Thumb hook at top, wire bound.
This year I am asking for payments via PayPal. I am not setting up the store, as they take fees and pay pal take fees. If you let me know how many you would like and where they are being shipped too. I will get an invoice and best shipping options worked out for you too. I may be able to get some shipped direct from the printers to you, but this will depend on where. They don't ship everywhere.
I have worked out them with Royal Mail too, these are as follows:-
The calendars are £13.00 each. Shipping will vary on quantity and where they are being posted too.
1 x calendar postage is £2.99
2 x calendars postage £4.49
1 x calendar postage £6.00
2 x calendars postage £6.32
Rest of the World
1 x calendar postage £7.22

Please send payments via PayPal to LMKemble@gmail.com. *Please send as friend / family so paypal doesn't deduct any fees. More goes to charity that way. Thank you
I have included a small donation fee in with the calendars, but if you wish to make an optional one please just add it on. I am taking on some of the printing costs this year so more goes to charity too.
Thank you Vinny May, Steve Garrigan, Mark Prendergast and Jason Boland for their continued support and allowing us to do this.
Thank you kindly for your support and generosity.
