A great night was had by all last Thursday when The Small Impact Writers Group from Navan, held a fund raising event in aid of the Kayley Dunne Appeal. It was a lively  humorous event with a wonderful mixture of music song and dance along with recitals of poetry and prose from members of the writers' group.
 The nights entertainment  was co presented by Edel Gillick and Jim Byrne, who did an excelent job and they both read from their own work.

Thanks to all who took part and attended on the night and a special thanks to Noel Foley and his wife Mary for the use of The Back Room, one of Navan's best known session rooms.
