Class acts shine on night
THERE WAS a night of music held in Bray last weekend to raise money for Merryn Lacy who recently celebrated her fifth birthday.
Merryn has a rare form of cancer and her family needs to raise hundreds of thousands to support her treatment and care in the hope of preventing relapse.
‘ Thank you everyone who attended, organised and played on the night,’ said Stephen Guerin, a spokesman for the Lacy family. ‘All of the acts were superb and it really showed how much local talent we have in Bray.’
The acts which performed in Jim Doyle’s last Friday included Kim Hayden, Pattanga, Keith Johnston, Chisty, Dan Bradley and many more.
It was all organised by the Homegrown Music collective. They run open mic nights on Fridays in Jim Doyle’s, Wednesdays in the Harbour and Saturdays in the Hibernia.
Organiser Shane Moloney said that the musicians who performed on the night are legends for showing their support for an amazing little girl.
‘A massive belated birthday to Merryn and hope she’s feeling better after her operation,’ said Shane. ‘Such a strong and amazing little girl and from all of us at HGM keep fighting.’
As well as the performance, there was a raffle and wristbands for sale on the night.
