JACINTA Barrett's vintage tea party proved a roaring success and raised over €1,000 for Brain Tumour Ireland, the first nationwide organisation dedicated to brain tumours in Ireland.
Jacinta held the tea party in her own home which was decorated with a colourful array of cakes, buns and other delicious and tempting treats. In-keeping with the vintage feel of the day Jacinta also dressed up in 1950's inspired attire.
The fundraising party was held for Brain Tumour Ireland, established by the Dunlavin family of Ronnie Fehily who died as a result of a brain tumour last year. Jacinta is a neighbour of the family of the deceased.
Earlier this year, Ronnie's son, Niall Roche, completed the entire 908km length of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in memory of his mother.
