The hard work of all involved in the Baile Mhuire Day Care Centre in Caherslee received a huge boost to its fortune last week after it was presented with a sizeable cheque, the proceeds from a concert held in its honour.

Held in the Rose Hotel back in May 15, the concert was the brainchild of Renee Fitzgibbon and Trish White, both of whom are members of the Opus 96 Chamber Choir, and who decided that Baile Mhuire were more than deserving of having a fundraiser held for them.

Performers on the night included local choir Opus 96 under the musical directorship of Martina Ryan Murphy and accompanied by Ann Connolly, they were joined by special guests Ardfert Ladies Choir, local Tenor, Lloyd Fitzgibbon, and Friends of Baile Mhuire featuring Johnny Moriarty and Baile Mhuire service-user, Michael McCarthy.

The night, which was given the theme 'A Little Help From My Friends' was a huge success, with people travelling from all over the county to lend their support. Now just shy of three months on from the concert, Baile Mhuire were presented with a cheque of €6,205 from Renee and Trish, the proceeds from the concert.

This money is now set to be added to Baile Mhuire's pool of money which will be used to buy a new bus for the service in the near future; their current bus is now coming up on over 15-years old.
