Weʼre raising £250 to buy a replacement Neil Diamond limited edition plate for fan and Facebook page organiser Ambrose O’Shea

What is crowdfunding?

Story

Ambrose O‘Shea of Dublin is well know to the international Neil Diamond fan community. He is one of the organisers of the popular Facebook page ‘Real Neil Diamond Fans’ and a supporter of Neil Diamond tribute artists around the world. On first name terms with most of Neil‘s band and crew he has been featured many times in Ireland’s press and TV items in as Ireland’s biggest Neil Diamond superfan and collector of Neil Diamond memorabelia.

Ambrose posted the other day that his treasured limited edition Neil Diamond wall plate has been broken! This appeal is to the friends of Ambrose and looks for each of us to contribute $20 towards a replacement plate. There are two available on Ebay and it would cost around $250 to replace Ambrose’s plate and arrange postage to Ireland. I propose to buy the plate and have it delivered to Eydie Ruth in the States. Once we get the full funding Eydie will arrage posting to Ambrose with a good-will message from us all! Regards and best wishes! Bob Drury

    Ok, EBay have given a full refund. I’ve ordered the only plate now available on EBay (US) and begged that it be insured and packaged really well! Total including customs into the EU was just shy of £250... so covered by your kind donations. I’ll keep you all informed and do a proper breakdown of costs once the plate is safely with our mutual friend! Bob

    Hi all. The plate arrived today from the States but was only packaged in a Jiffy bag, unfortunately it arrived smashed into three pieces! I immediately contacted the seller who has emailed back to say that he will “sort it out in a few days”. EBay will not step in until he has had a few days to respond although I have lodged a complaint and refund request. There are other plates on EBay but I won’t buy one until he refunds. If it doesn’t work out your donations will be returned... please bear with me, I will keep you updated. Regards Bob

    Hi All. There were two plates on EBay. The cheapest was $250. It belonged to the wife of a chap called Alex who was a massive ND fan and who has passed..I explained who it was for and he reduced the price by $50. With postage and customs into the EU the total was $280. We are about a third of the way there but I’m expecting donations from more of the ‘Vegas’ crowd.and other friends of Ambrose. I’m thinking he will be made up that we’ve done this for him!

    I’m going to notify the Cherry Sistas in case they’d like to help. They were a presence in Vegas! And we all love Ambrose!
