Gabriel launches CD in aid of can­cer sup­port

Bray People - - Bray People -

THE FRUITS of Gabriel Cran­ley’s labour were cel­e­brated last Thurs­day night, with the launch of his CD at the Martello in aid of Bray Can­cer Sup­port.

The lo­cal mu­si­cian recorded the al­bum un­der the tough­est of con­di­tions, whilst suf­fer­ing with a tu­mour in his throat. The project, how­ever, has given him a sense of achieve­ment that no amount of money can buy.

‘It just goes to show the power of the mind,’ said Veron­ica O’Leary of the Can­cer Sup­port Cen­tre, who said that the fundrais­ing as­pect of the al­bum is secondary to the help it has been to 52-year-old Gabriel.

Guests were treated to a short live per­for­mance on Thurs­day night, and the CD of 12 songs was played in the back­ground for the rest of the evening.

Or­gan­is­ers would like to thank all their spon­sors, as well as the busi­nesses sell­ing the al­bum from their premises. The col­lec­tion is avail­able from Mu­sic­, Hol­lands, The Ard­more and The Olde Bray Inn, as well as Gold­smiths, Boomerang, and the Bray Can­cer Sup­port Cen­tre.

Gabriel has ded­i­cated the record­ing to the mem­ory of Lucy Cran­ley, Val Cran­ley, Breda Guerin, Peter McKenna and He­len Roche, as well as all re­la­tions and friends whose lives have been af­fected by can­cer.

At the launch of Gaye Cran­ley’s CD were Coun­cil­lor Brid Collins and Veron­ica O’Leary. INSET: Carmel Robin­son and Geral­dine Vick­ers en­joy­ing the launch evening.
