The reception began with a moment of remembrance for the late Dolores O’Riordan, with musicians David Idioh and Brian Finn playing the instrumental version of ‘Zombie’ by the Cranberries.

Crowds turned out for the CJ Stander St Munchins community centre fundraiser launch after the centre had a devastating fire which destroyed their hairdressing facilities due to a technical fault. They need to raise €9,000 to rebuild the facilities to a good standard and hopefully from the turnout of the launch, that will be no problem. Along with appearing for photographs and signing autographs for all who attended, CJ also donated a prize for the fundraising raffle taking place on March 16th.
