A concert held recently in St Mary's Church, Enniscorthy for Wexford Mental Health Association was a massive success.

The concert featured a diverse range of singers and musicians who performed an eclectic programme of songs and tunes.

Among those who participated in the event were County Wexford Youth Orchestra, Enniscorthy Choral Group, Rowe Street Choir, the Loch Garman Band and Ferns singing sensation David O'Connor.

The organisers were delighted with the attendance, which saw the church packed to capacity for what was a very enjoyable night of entertainment.

Wexford Mental Health Association is affiliated to Mental Health Ireland and its aim is to help and support people who are experiencing mental health difficulties.

The organisation also works to promote positive mental health across the model county.

The artists who took part in the concert were delighted to be able to support such a worthy organisation, while the organising committee behind the concert thanked the general public for their strong show of support on the night.
