Boston is rallying for little Sergio O’Connor

The Burren Pub in Davis Square, Somerville, is holding an all-day fundraiser for the medical care of Sergio  on Sunday, May 20, from 3 to 9 p.m. The event includes live music by local traditional Irish musicians, a complimentary buffet, and raffle prizes.

Sergio was born in Ireland on March 5, 2011 with an incomplete oesophagus, a condition which prevents him from eating, drinking and swallowing. He has been given approval to have a life-changing operation at Children’s Hospital in Boston.

Sergio’s father, Donal O’Connor, is a traditional musician in Dublin and has the support of Boston’s Irish music community. The Burren fundraiser was organized by traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello.
