It was a night full of colour and variety for the audience who attended 'The Best of Wexford' fundraising concert where nine local acts took to the stage to help raise funds for St Vincent de Paul.

The concert was a first for some of the local acts who took part in this well-supported event.

The night kicked-off with a special guest performance from Wexford legend Declan Sinnott, accompanied by singer/songwriter Vickie Keating.

MC Liam Gaul, virtuoso accordionist, performed a short piece before introducing the rest of the acts: James Bierney (international baritone); Ruth Miller (pianist); Declan Breslin (impressionist); Paul Molloy (American country); Barry O'Neill (comedian); Fianna Rossiter (soprano) with Peter Smyth (pianist); Tin Sandwich Band; and the Wexford School of Music Flute Quartet.

Committee member Nora Fitzharris said it was a great evening, well supported by local businesses and an amazing variety of talent from Wexford.
