Musician Jack Curran launched his first CD at the grand old age of 90 at an event in Glynn Barntown GAA clubhouse.

Well-known accordionist Jack of Carrigmannon, Killurin, was supported by great friends and family members including including up to 30 musicians and singers while Peter Hughes acted as Master of Ceremonies for the night.

Among those attendance were Jack's niece Mairead Curran and her father Joe Curran, and the musicians Michael Egan and Shem Tompkins who all collaborated in the making of the CD.

The CD was officially launched by Tony Kehoe of South East Radio. Jack who celebrated his 90th birthday in January and still plays regular traditional sessions in Galbally, was delighted with the support he received at the launch.

A charity night in aid of Wexford Hospice Homecare will be held in Declan's of Killurin on Saturday, July 6 when Jack will be selling more CD's.

Everyone is invited along to enjoy a night of music and singing. The proceeds of all CD sales will go to the Hospice Homecare organisation.
