Making Talks Come True

My name is Leo Taylor and I brought the talk of a Warooka Concert featuring the O'Loughlins and Kennedy's into a reality. The Late Michael Kennedy, the grandfather of Alice, Hugo, and Tomas Kennedy, owned the Warooka Hotel in the late 1900's.

From the time I heard talks about the concert needed to become reality, I had found that 2018 January would be the best time as the Kennedy's had flown to Australia for holidays at Point Souttar and the O'Loughlins too flooded to the Yorke Peninsula enjoying a break from the hip city of Melbourne.


The night raised $1.040 in funds to support the S.T.E.M. subjects at Saint Columba's Memorial School. Organising this event at the pub was out of the ordinary for the publicans John and Anne of Warooka, who thought they were discussing plans with an adult instead it turns out I'm a 15 year old from Port Pirie, 2 1/2 hours away from Warooka. However, through many phone calls, John and Anne had organised a night of success for all.


The wonderful music from Alice Haddy; Hugo, Alice, and Tomas Kennedy; as well as the open mic including Emily Taheny and the current publican of the Warooka Hotel.

The night also provided a catch up to interconnections of families and friends who haven't seen each other a long time or even just the day before hitting a hole-in-one at the Warooka Golf Course.

Special Thanks: John and Anne (Publicans of Warooka Hotel), Harriet Richter (Poster Design), Alice Haddy (Loan of PA System), Wayne Hayes (Loan of Amps and Guitars as well as a room for performers to practice, Sam Peterson (Photography and Video on the Night), Alice, Hugo and Tomas Kennedy, Mary-Agnes and Albert O'Loughlin and Alice Haddy (Performing on the Night).
