Wexford People - - NEWS -

The craic was ninety in Mer­nagh’s of Oyle­gate re­cently as they hosted a spe­cial cabaret night in aid of Wex­ford Hos­pice Home­care. The fundraiser was the idea of up­right bass player Jonathan O’Han­lon, gui­tarist Derek O’Toole and singer Paddy Ma­her who lent their tal­ents to the cause and kept ev­ery­one en­ter­tained on the night.

‘The three lads just de­cided to get to­gether and play a bit of mu­sic for char­ity,’ said Ea­monn Mer­nagh, owner of the es­tab­lish­ment and Chair­man of Wex­ford Hos­pice. ‘They’re not a band or any­thing like that, but you wouldn’t think that to lis­ten to them. They were bril­liant and played a bit of ev­ery­thing and kept ev­ery­one go­ing. We had a right crowd in and it was a great night.’

The evening man­aged to raise a to­tal of €629 for Hos­pice which will go di­rectly to­wards help­ing them to main­tain the out­stand­ing ser­vices they of­fer to peo­ple with can­cer right across the county.

Ea­monn wished to thank the trio of mu­si­cians for all their hard work in or­gan­is­ing the evening and ev­ery­one who came along on the night.
