Bingo - Bingo continues in Clonoulty Hall every Sunday evening at 8.30pm. All monies raised go to the playground development fund. Every time you play, you show your support – thank you. For the month of December we have lots of spot prizes and are also 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. 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.
Other Playground News - Our calendar is now available for purchase. Pre-orders were taken on the day of the photo shoot so, if your children took part, you will be contacted directly by a committee member to facilitate delivery to you. Calendars are €10 and include a very handy planner, so will be a beautiful and useful Christmas gift for family and friends. They will also be available to purchase locally. Again, thank you so much for your support – all profits go directly to our playground fund.
