The second Folk Aid concert was held in the Ashburn Hotel in 1986.

The sum of £2,000 was raised from tickets sales even before the concert even started.

Local group ‘Darcy’ were responsible for co-ordinating the appearance of around 16 groups and solo performers from all over the province.

It proved to be a huge success with some superb entertainment.

All the money raised was donated to the Sport Aid Appeal

Pictured above are some of the local artistes who took part.
