In the news recently was the massive bailout initiated by the European Union to help Ireland out of its financial crisis.
In the USA, famous Americans of Irish descent are also doing their share to help in the sad plight of the land of their forefathers.
Harrison Ford, the noted Hollywood actor, will host a fund-raising dinner in Los Angeles wherein he will invite industry friends and colleagues to chip in while they enjoy the Irish-themed food and the pleasant music of the Irish Celtic music folk group, the Corrs.
Conan O'Brien, the famous late-night talk show host, will host a HELP IRELAND marathon telethon. During the length of the telecast, he will help narrate a series of videos familiarizing the televiewers with the culture of Ireland and its people and also why Ireland has developed into a worst case scenario of financial haplessness. But since Conan is a comedian, he will spill over into the documentaries his own brand of sense of humor.
