Al Porter in association with Lisa Richards and The Civic are proud to present Al Porter At Large for Pieta House. Every single cent made in this gig will go to Pieta House.
Irish star Al Porter, as seen on BBC’s Live at the Apollo, follows up his hugely successful Edinburgh debut with a brand new show full of cheekiness, honesty & sparkling showmanship! Still living at home in Dublin, 23 year old Al has plenty of gossip from accidentally kidnapping his Godson to holidaying with twenty middle aged strangers! A feel good hour full of his trademark council-estate camp!

Pieta House opened its doors a decade ago with Lucan in County Dublin the centre of operations. In the intervening years we have seen and helped over 25,000 people in suicidal distress or who were engaging in self-harm, and established nine subsequent centres, three in the greater Dublin area – Ballyfermot, Tallaght and Finglas and six further centres to cater for the rest of the country in Limerick, Cork, Tipperary, Galway, Kerry and Waterford.
As it has been from day one, everything is free of charge and our staff are fully qualified and provide a professional one-to-one therapeutic service for people who are experiencing suicidal ideation, people who have attempted suicide and people who are engaging in self-harm. A doctor’s referral or a psychiatric report is not required.
Pieta House also operates the Suicide Bereavement Counselling centres that had previously been operated by Console. We provide free counselling, therapy and support to individuals, couples, families and children who have been bereaved by suicide. We also offer a Suicide Bereavement Liaison Service and the Freecall 24/7 suicide helpline 1800 247 247.
