The annual barn dance in Byrne's grain store in Bree village was a great success.

The event featured music from the Kilkennys and also local singer-songwriter Coleen Coughlan who is one of the rising stars of the contemporary Irish music scene.

In addition to the two live music acts there was also a DJ providing music.

The event has been held for the last five years and has grown in popularity each year.

The organisers use it to raise money for different organisations, with the local GAA club and local community development projects being beneficiaries this year.

The venue is also ideal for the event and provides an added atmosphere to the occasion.

Bree has a very close-knit community and that fact is underlined each year by the number of people who attend the event and this time around was no exception.

The organisers are very appreciative of the support the event receives every year.

They thanked everyone involved in making this year's barn dance a great success.

In particular, they thanked the local people for their support and the various acts were acknowledged for their professionalism.

The Kilkennys are one of the country's foremost folk acts, with a reputation for top- quality performances every time they play.

This year's event was a resounding success much to the delight of the organisers.
