MAD HATTERS IN ARKLOW

MADNESS, mayhem and music made for a wonderful fun and feel-good event in Arklow on Sunday.
Local couple Marie and Roy Dempsey once again opened their beautiful garden for a worthwhile community event in aid of the Arklow Music & Arts Group (AMA) campaign for a theatre and performance space for Arklow.
Proceeds of more than €300 from refreshements served on the day were donated to the Alzheimer Society.
The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party was a great success and welcomed guests of all ages for refreshments and plenty of entertainment.
A large array of local performers took part in the event and the standard of talent was excellent.
Groups including Inbhear Mor Performance Ensemble, The Walker Sisters, Gabriel Brady, Eileen Mc Clean, Brian Lawlor, Catherine Byrne, Mad Drama School and Small Town Crisis, took to the stage as well as Bernard Fox, Margaret Fitzgerald and some of the AMA young performers Amy Condren, Eoghan, Ross and Charlotte Kinsella, Ella De Burca Montague, Bri Elle Finn, Roisin and Fionn Vigors, Ella Healy, Jake Molloy, Darcy Kernan, Bri Anna & Maileah Byrne, Eire and Chulainn Ni Fhaolain, Aine Furlong, Mark Condren, Ellen and Eva Duffy.
A total of €1,500 was raised for Arklow Music & Arts and the organisers to thank everyone who showed their support particularly Marie and Roy Dempsey.
