Top musicians take the stage for Able Disabled Club fundraiser

Music fans braved the wet and windy weather recently in order to enjoy a night of wonderful live music in aid of a great cause at The Riverbank House Hotel.

Keen to raise a substantial amount of money for Wexford Able Disabled Club and following the success of a similar event last year, the Gregg family once again staged a Charity Music Night with some of Wexford's best musicians.

Playing on the night were Divine Intervention, The Whobodies and JMA and they went down a treat with the assembled crowd. 'It was a great night for those who managed to make it out,' said Annette Gregg, who organised the event along with her daughter.

'I think the bad weather played a bit of a part though unfortunately. I think a lot of people who would have come otherwise were put off by the weather.

However, everyone who did make it out had a great night. The bands really played their hearts out and they were brilliant. We'd just like to thank them all for giving up their time to take part.'

The night also saw a Leinster jersey signed by the whole squad, donated by Nolan Transport, auctioned off as well as a number of other items including travel vouchers and a framed picture of Wexford Bridge.

In total the event managed to raise over €3,000 for Wexford Able Disabled Club and the Gregg family wish to thank everyone who played a part in making the night such a success.
