Staff from Crumlin Children's Hospital took their hats off to Maureen Furlong and co when the Taghmon team raised €3,000 for the hospital at their country music night.

A huge crowd got in the swing of things at Micko's bar where they enjoyed music by C.C. Cooper, a barbeque, a magic show and of course, plenty of dancing. Though it was the first ever country music night fundraiser, Maureen said she hopes to make it an annual event.

Maureen's son was the inspiration for her fundraising efforts as he has been attending Crumlin Children's Hospital for the last several years. He suffers from a rare condition called Stephen Johnson's Syndrome but according to Maureen, is now on the mend.
