A great crowd descended on Our Lady's Island Village over the weekend for the return of the annual Leo Carthy Weekend. Organisers were delighted to see people flooding back to the island once again following the Covid-enforced absence of recent years, and people made up for lost time as they sampled a varied programme of music and entertainment.

Things got under way on Saturday night with the Variety Concert in the Community Hall, hosted by South East Radio’s Alan Corcoran and featuring the likes of Danescastle Music Group, George Lawlor, Nick Kinsella, William Troy, Wexford's Got Talent winner Sarah Deevy and rip-roaring comedy from The Ballycogley Players.

The following day, things started off with a 6km fun run before a whole host of impeccably maintained vintage vehicles rolled in for the road run. As well as this, there was live music outside throughout the day and a great atmosphere as the weather largely held up.

"It was a very successful weekend,” said Cllr Ger Carthy, son of Leo Carthy. “We had a full house for the variety concert on Saturday and a great atmosphere around the place the following day. I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of the artists and volunteers who came along over the weekend and gave freely of their time so that local charities can benefit from the event.
