A GREAT line-up of local talent is coming together this week to raise much-needed funds for Wexford Marinewatch.

The 'One Night of Music and Song' event promises to be a fantastic evening of entertainment and will kick off at 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, at Bride Street Church, Wexford.

Headed up by Bride Street Folk Group, other acts on the night will include; George Lawlor, Roisin Dempsey, The Gallivants, Mick Lawlor & Trad Group, John Cullen and The Jersey Boys, Megan and Sarah singing the Bond medley and our comedy trio Biddy, Jeannette and Tammy.

Tickets are on sale from any Marinewatch Volunteer, but are also available at the door on the night. Tickets are Adult €10, Child and OAP tickets are €5, Family Ticket €25 (2Adults & 4Kids) with all proceeds going directly to Marinewatch.

There is a door prize for some lucky person and there will also be spot prizes throughout the night, including a Raffle. Put the date in your diary and enjoy an evening out with your family while supporting a great cause!

Established in December 2012, the primary objective of Marinewatch was to try and reduce the high level of death by suicide in the Wexford Harbour and the bridge area. Since then no one has lost their life through suicide in the harbour.
