Final preparations are ongoing for the Club’s biggest social event of the year–the Annual Monster Christmas Quiz, which will be held in St Joseph’s Hall on Friday the 27th of December. This is always a great opportunity to meet with our returned exiles and to discuss the happenings of the year gone by, as well as pitting of wits on Tony Conboy’s questions. Proceedings will commence at 8.30pm.
It was expected that the playing season had ended, but plans are afoot for a special charity football match to be played at 12.30pm on St Stephen’s Day in the Abbey Park between the Intermediate champions of 2005 and the current champions. This should be a very special event as bragging rights will be clearly established by whichever team comes out on top. More importantly, the proceeds from the occasion will be donated to SHOUT (Sligo Hospital Oncology Unit Trust) and a large attendance would be appreciated to raise funds for this worthy cause.
The following were €20 winners at Saturday night’s Club Lotto draw which was held in The Patrick’s Well;- Stephen Bohan, Aaron O’Connor, Trevor Conroy, Denis Flanagan, Hugh McPadden and the Dodd Family. The house prize was won by Michael Burke. The next draw will be held in Kate Lavin’s on Saturday night 28th December, when the jackpot will be at €5,200 and Team ‘B’ will be in charge.
Plans are in progress for a fundraising initiative early in the New Year.
The Club’s Annual Dinner Dance will be held in early February–more details in the coming weeks.
The Club–Minor and Senior and Ladies Club extend Christmas greetings to all our players, management teams, sponsors, supporters and lotto ticket purchasers and also all who provide us with excellent media coverage.
We urge everyone in the locality to shop local and to support the businesses who continue to generously sponsor our Club.
