Mr Dundon of Dunbrody House, County Wexford fame, entertained a large audience with his wit, charm and of course, his cooking prowess. A lucky few of the audience were selected at random to sample his cooking at the end of the night.

A lucky member of the audience won a door prize of a two-night stay in the Bonnington Hotel in Dublin. Many more were winners in a raffle kindly sponsored by Irwin’s Electrical, Carpet Interiors, Shandon Hotel, Dunbrody House and many others.

Mr Peter Cutliffe, Chairman of the Friends thanked all for supporting the event, inclusive of the main sponsor Kelly’s Toyota and all the other companies who paid for stalls to display their wares on the night.
