The annual Black Tie Ball, which returned this year after a Covid-enforced absence, has raised €5,000 for two local charities. Organised by Linda Brennan this year’s Black Tie Ball was held in the Talbot Hotel in March and saw performances from Divine Intervention and The Ballet Academy and a raffle with prizes including a posture assessment and free bra-fitting.

And after a successful and enjoyable event, Linda was delighted to hand over cheques of €2,500 to Family Carers Ireland (FCI) and the Wexford Rape Crisis Centre (WRCC). 

“The family carers have always been on the list, through my own personal experiences I understand how important they are and from speaking to others I know their work extends to helping those with special needs,” said Linda. “The Rape Crisis Centre approached me and asked would I consider them and they were an absolute pleasure to work with and again I learned about the services they provide and how there’s a whole lot more to them than you might first realise.”

Already committed to hosting the ball again next year, with a date of March 19 confirmed, Linda wished to thank Clare and Mairead from the WRCC and Jason from the FCI for their help organising the event and also Shirley Murphy who she said will be playing a “prominent role” in the ball moving forward.
