The acts involved were "Misneach " a traditional Irish music group consisting of local musicians Junior Davey, Declan Folan, Daithi Gormley, Brian Lofthouse and Tony De Marco who hails from  New York. They started the proceedings and provided a lovely atmosphere while those attending tucked into the delicious 4-course dinner.
