Witches, zombies and 'Young Offenders' all conspired to create a brilliant atmosphere for the eagerly anticipated pre-Halloween fancy dress disco staged by Rylane Boxing Club in the Bush Bar, Millstreet.

Ensuring that it lived up to its billing as one of the big nights of the year, fun loving clubbers put together an array of characters and spooky outfits, with proceeds from the function going to club funds and charity. Patrons at the function donned fitting attire from the Brendan Grace character Bottler to Superman to zombies - just a selection of the costumes that were on show as new and old friends revelled in the atmosphere of the event.  "It was a marvellous  atmosphere and thanks to everybody that attended particularly well done to those who donned costumes in the spirit of the occasion", said club spokesperson Nuala Desmond.

She expressed delight at the response to the event, the main annual fundraiser for the the flourishing Mid Cork club. Prizewinners included Donough McSweeney from Rathmore and Katie O'Callaghan, Brendan O'Sullivan and John Paul Cleary from Millstreet. "Everyone was in such superb fancy dress, it was a brilliant night," said Nuala.
