Garda Band sing for the De La Salle Cen­tre

Wicklow People - - FRONT PAGE -

THE GARDA Band en­ter­tained a large crowd in St Patrick’s Church on Sun­day night, play­ing an ar­ray of pop­u­lar hit songs.

The event was or­gan­ised by David Earls and acted as a fundraiser for the De La Salle Pas­toral Cen­tre.

Old favourites such as ‘YMCA’ and Glen Miller’s ‘In the Mood’ proved par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar with the re­cep­tive au­di­ence. The Brit­tas Bay Singers also per­formed dur­ing the in­ter­val.

David was de­lighted with the re­cep­tion the Garda Band re­ceived.

‘We had a great turn out and I couldn’t ac­tu­ally be­lieve the amount of peo­ple who turned up. It was a great night. I have to thank the Garda Band for com­ing to the venue. It was also won­der­ful to gave the Brit­tas Bay Singers in­volved dur­ing the in­ter­val.

‘I have so many peo­ple to thank for lend­ing me as­sis­tance. Ail­ish Whe­lan and the staff of the pas­toral cen­tre pro­vided lovely meals to all the Garda Band mem­bers. They were won­der­ful. Fr Donal Roche was of great as­sis­tance so I have to thank him as well. Other peo­ple who played a vi­tal role in or­gan­is­ing ev­ery­thing were Deb­bie Han­lon, Joe Han­lon and Geral­dine Egan. It was a bril­liant night and we are still count­ing up all the money the con­cert raised.’
