The razors and wax strips were out in force in McCarthy's Bar in Finuge when a some of north Kerry bravest lost their locks at the hands of Listowel barber 'Jack the Boot' who shaved the lads' heads, while local beautician Philomena was on hand with the wax strips throughout the night.

As the men settled down to relax and recover from their ordeals, Martin Beehan kept them and the rest of the packed house entertained into the wee small hours.

Chairperson of Listowel Hospice, Kay Hanley, paid tribute to organiser DJ Kelly and everyone who took part in the event, which she described as 'absolutely brilliant.'

"The place was absolutely packed and there were plenty of volunteers cutting hair and having their legs and chests waxed. Fair play to them! It was an absolutely brilliant night and the committee here at Listowel Hospice want to express our sincere thanks for their support."

Listowel Hospice provides residential care for cancer patients on the grounds of Listowel Hospital. Through the years, the Listowel Hospice committee has worked tirelessly to raise funds and modernise the hospice and offer support to the family and friends of those in their care
