VIDEO: Athlone teens' song about unity in the fight against Covid-19

On Friday last, 17-year-old Shaun Fox from Athlone released a new collaborative song he had written called 'United As One'. 

An anthem about strength in togetherness during the pandemic, it was recorded by Shaun and 17 other teenagers based in Athlone and surrounding areas. 

'United As One' is a fundraiser for five Irish hospitals and aims to raise a total of €10,000.

In just three days it's already close to the halfway point of achieving that target, and people are encouraged to donate at the following Go Fund Me page: https://www.gofundme.com/f/arzgnc-united-as-one
