Crowds gathered in the Amber Springs Hotel in Gorey to enjoy the Irish country sounds of 'The Galway Boy' Mike Denver and his award-winning band as they entertained the crowd for over two hours.

Oulart The Ballagh GAA Cub organised the event as a fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the ongoing development of the club.

'It was a good night and everyone enjoyed themselves. It was the first time the club had done something like that before, we saw an opportunity and we took it,' said Niamh Sinnott of the club.

'We are still counting the money raised by with a good crowd, it was definitely a success. It's the end of our fundraising season now,' she said.

With more than 15 years in the entertainment business, Mike Denver has been making a name for himself at home and abroad and was named Entertainer of the Year at the Irish Country Music Awards in 2016.
