'The Mad Hatters Tea Party' in aid of Breast Cancer event!

The Mad Hatters Tea Party will be happening this Thursday on the 23rd of May in aid of Breast Cancer. In Ireland, over 2,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Major advances in cancer care have been made in recent years.

"Thanks to vastly improved access to the right care at the right time for women with possible symptoms referred to the eight designated cancer centres, advances in treatments, and a national roll-out of the BreastCheck programme for women without symptoms, the picture for breast cancer in Ireland is far more positive than before."

The 'Mad Hatters Tea Party' is shaping up to be a very special night that will celebrate local boutiques and a very worthy cause. I have been asked to be the emcee for the night and presenter. Enniscorthy is my hometown and it is an honour to be involved with an event for a cause that is touched not only my family and friends but those of everyone participating. The event will be taking place in Enniscorthy hotspot D- Bar from 8pm.

Tickets are available from local boutiques!
D Bar is a central disco bar that has a taste of Manhattan about it. It is very sophisticated and a chic local haven for those who love good music and a vibrant atmosphere. The 'Mad Hatters Tea Party' actually coincides with the fourth anniversary of D- Bar. To celebrate the beginning of the Strawberry season in a very Wexford fashion, fresh organic strawberry mojitos will be available for attendees. Yum!

The night will feature complimentary cocktails & cupcakes, with prizes for categories such as 'best dressed lady' & 'most creative headpiece'. There will also be a raffle of preloved & vintage handbags and one lucky lady will strut away with a designer Gucci handbag! This night will be a stylish & fun celebration. Kudos to Gillian and all those in the Enniscorthy Business Association for their great efforts. DJ James Ward is on the decks for the fashion show that will showcase all the latest stylish attire and accessories available in Enniscorthy.

  1. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
    for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as +447053820826 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
