Approximately €4,000 was raised last week as the Midlands branch of Acquired Brain Injury Ireland held their Valentine's black tie ball in Tullamore.

The ball took place on Saturday, February 10 at the Tullamore Court Hotel with Aprés Match star, actor and comedian Gary Cooke on the mic as MC. John Colleary from the Savage Eye was also on hand to help with the hosting as hundreds turned out in support.

Acquired Brain Injury Ireland (ABI Ireland) is Ireland's leading provider of community based neuro-rehabilitation services for people who have acquired a brain injury in Ireland.

Founded in 2000 as the Peter Bradley foundation, ABI Ireland enables people between the ages of 18 and 65 with an acquired brain injury to live an independent life by providing them with a supportive living environment. 

The Midlands branch of ABI supports people in a transitional living capacity in Mountbolus, Co. Offaly, as well as supporting over 150 people currently in the midlands region.
