Class acts shine on night

Bray People - - MIND GAMES -

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.
