Wexford Able-Disabled Club were singing the praises of the Wexford Male Voice Choir when they presented them with a cheque recently.

The money, which amounted to €2365, was raised by the choir at their special musical event last month. The local choir was joined by the Australian Welsh Voice choir for a night that according to Tony Murphy, was a huge success.

'There were over 200 people in the Riverbank House Hotel,' said Tony, treasurer of the Able-Disabled Club. 'The two choirs received great praise from the audience.'

The Australian Welsh Choir took time out from their tour of the UK and Ireland to lend their voice to the charity. Although only in Wexford for two days, they also managed to fit in a traditional music session in Brown's Lounge in Gorey which according to Tony, they thoroughly enjoyed.

Celebrations will continue for the club when they mark their 30th anniversary at the Riverbank House Hotel in November.
