HAIL Music Group releases two new professionally recorded songs
The HAIL Music Group – which comprises tenants, volunteers and staff of HAIL Housing Association – has released two new professionally recorded songs.
The songs: Set Sail and One More Night, were produced in a recording studio with the support of the Dublin Bus Community Spirit Awards.
The concepts for the songs were developed by the group during the Covid-19 pandemic where they met online and in parks to continue producing music. The songs are about the experiences of people living with mental health difficulties.
HAIL is a specialist housing association primarily for people with mental health difficulties. The organisation was founded in 1985 as the first housing association in Ireland with a specific brief to provide a housing service designed to meet the needs of people living with mental health difficulties.
HAIL has since developed into a successful approved housing body providing exceptional quality housing and support services predominantly to tenants and clients with mental health difficulties and also to general needs tenants.
The housing association currently provides 440 homes across Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Offaly, Longford and Limerick. In 2022, HAIL delivered mental health tenancy support services to a record 586 people.
