Congratulations - Congrats to Aisling Hickey on winning 2 bronze medals in L.A. in the world racquetball championship last week. She won 1 medal in singles, this is a fantastic achievement as no one from Ireland has ever won a medal in the top grade on the World stage, she won her second medal in doubles with her partner Katie Kenny from Castlebar.

Bingo - We were delighted with the crowd again at bingo in Clonoulty last Sunday evening, it’s building every week and it’s really lovely to hear people comment on how much they enjoy the atmosphere. Bingo continues each Sunday night at 8.30 p.m. in Clonoulty.

For the month of December we have lots of spot prizes and will also be raffling beautiful Christmas hampers, so make sure to come along to be in with a chance of taking home some great prizes. It’s great to see all ages there, and it really is an enjoyable night out. Bingo continues in Clonoulty Hall every Sunday evening at 8.30pm with guaranteed prize money of at least €1,000. All monies raised go to the playground development fund. Every time you play, you show your support – thank you. This Sunday could be your lucky night so why not come along and try your luck and enjoy a great night out with your friends. All welcome - Great cause, great fun, great prizes!

Other playground news - We hope to have our calendars ready by the end of this week, we have just finalised the proof and it really is lovely – so that’s some of your Christmas presents sorted!
