Saturday 27th July seen our Fundraising Race Night race into action with a start time of 9.30pm. There was a great turnout in the Village Inn which was testament to the locals who are behind the project for our Village. The night was a success from start to finish with great excitement coming from young and old!! Again, we exceeded expectations with over €4400 being raised with €200 being added to the pot when Mary Kelly declined to accept the top race prize!! Big Thanks Mary. And a big Thanks to everyone who supported the fundraiser through sponsorship, purchasing horses and attending on the night itself!!
