We are over the moon to announce the release of this truly wonderful and unique version of ‘True Friends’ originally created for RTÉ’s “Comic Relief” charity TV Show.

With Comic Relief’s blessing ‘True Friends’ will now be available to buy on iTunes with all proceeds going to the mental health charity ‘A Lust For Life.’ We would also like to encourage people to make a donation on

Since the Covid19 crisis and lockdown began in March 2020, the mental health and wellbeing content curated by A Lust for Life to support the nation during lockdown has reached over four million people. 

As a father of four I am thrilled to do all I can to get behind this very important charity, supporting our children’s mental health and well being during this historically challenging time.

A Lust for Life charity co-founder, chairperson and acting CEO, Paula McLoughlin, said:

We’re delighted that Jerry Fish has chosen to release ‘True Friends’ for A Lust for Life. The message of the song reflects so much of what is important to us and what we convey with friendship and sticking together, even when apart. It’s especially important for young people to know that true friends will always be there, even if you don’t get to see them for awhile. We’re all big fans of Jerry Fish and love how he has brought so many fantastic musicians together for this song. 

Check us out on A Lust for Life is a registered charity.

Every artist on ‘True Friends’ recorded their performances while in lock down in Ireland and elsewhere. The recording is a time capsule of artists in lock down. #savethearts
