A cheque for €1,700 was presented to Katie Kinsella of the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association in Clayton Whites Hotel.

The money was raised through a coffee morning held in Whitford House Hotel, organised by Cllr Lisa McDonald and Vanessa Davey, whose partner's brother is suffering from the illness.

The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only organisation of its kind in the country. It was set up in 1985 to provide care and support to people with Motor Neuron Disease, their carers, families and friends. There are currently more than 370 people living with MND in Ireland; 11 of those are in Wexford.

The aim of the event, Vanessa said, was not just to raise funds but also raise awareness of the condition.
