Eily’s Report – 23rd August

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.

The long life of our €20.000 Jackpot was brought to a successful conclusion at the offices of our Adult Learning Centre on Sunday night. The lovely Paddy and Mary Golden came to claim their wonderful prize as did Marie Reen to claim her €2 000 seller’s prize. A fine number of members turned up to greet them and a pictorial record of the special occasion was expertly done by Sean Radley, as only Sean can. Mary was well-known to some of the members as a great supporter of Bingo here in Millstreet in the past and now starting off with a jackpot of €6.600 the dedicated team will continue their great work in aid of Millstreet GAA, The Town Park and the Community Council for the Youth Centre. Needless to say it cannot be done without your help, your continued support enables these leading groups to keep Millstreet on the map for people of all ages in our community. So please keep up the good work.
