Almost €7,000 was handed over to the Wexford Hospice Homecare last week thanks to Taghmon's Got Talent.
The final of the hugely popular Taghmon's Got Talent took place on November 29 in the Horse and Hound and last week the proceeds of the competition were given to Wexford Hospice Homecare.
Pat O'Callaghan said the competition which was judged by Don O'Connor from Kilkenny had been a major success.
Artists from 13 pubs around the county took part in the competition battling it out for the Joe Monaghan cup. The overall winners were 7th Fret while there were five star performance awards too.
These when to Niamh Cullen, Thomas Furlong and Willie Murphy, Cait Barron, Niamh and Kealy for the instrumental award and the Healy Rae brothers performed by the Newbawn Players.
In the pub section the best MC award went to Des Redmond and the winning pub was the Millennium Bar in Davidstown. The runner up was the Horse and Hound while third was Alice Brady's of Taghmon.
In total €6,712 was handed over to the Wexford Hospice Homecare which was accepted by Eithne Fitzpatrick. Next year marks the 10th anniversary of Taghmon's Got Talent and plans are in motion to make it a very special show to commemorate the occasion.
