The biggest fundraiser of the year for St Mogue’s GAA Club in Fethard on Sea went off wonderfully, with huge crowds enjoying great music, food and craic.

It exceeded our expectations. We were delighted with the number of people,” said club chairman Charlie Walsh.

With performances from Sharon McCracken, Lee Meyler and Divine Intervention the crowd were bopping along all night to great tunes at the barn dance.

“They played a bit of everything. It generated a good buzz. We had food and a full bar but it was all club members. A lot of our players got stuck in on the night and in the lead up to it,” said Charlie.

Blessed with fine weather on the August Bank Holiday Sunday, the revellers made the most of the window of fine weather to party the night away.

“One and a half, two years ago we didn’t know was was coming around the corner (with Covid). We didn’t think we’d be able to hold this or anything like it again.

“We’d like to make the barn dance an annual event as the amount of money we raised was substantial.”
On behalf of the club he thanked Tom Noonan for the loan of the venue, located so close to the village.

“There was a lot of work to put it all together but in the end we got it done in a few days. We have a special barn dance committee of around 20 people so I want to thank all of those volunteers and the people who supported us in the night and the local businesses.”
