Wexford Hospice Homecare was presented with a cheque recently from money raised through a fundraising event in Rathnure called Shot & Caught.

The weekend long event was based around a 'back to rare ould times' theme and included a memorial 30-bird shoot along with traditional music sessions, a poker classic and a very well supported tractor run.

A sing-along with local musicians in Conran's Pub, Rathnure, proved very popular with the poker classic in O'Neill's, 'The Top Place', in Balllywilliam was also very popular.

The organisers thanked everyone who supported the event and said it was a great success.

They also expressed delight at being able to hand a cheque for €22,498.45 to representatives of Wexford Hospice Homecare.
