Aodh Ruadh club notes 23/12/2014

December 23rd, 2014 | Aodh Ruadh Ballyshannon

Hurling

The Juvenile Hurlers held their annual table quiz last Thursday in Owen Roe’s with eight tables taking part. Karl Duggan acted as quiz master and as usual a great night’s fun and craic was had. Paddy Kelly led the winning team comprising of Mary Hoey, Pamela Zarb, Eleanor Rooney and Meabh Rooney to a hard fought victory. Thanks to Belleek Pottery who sponsored the winning prizes, as they do annually. Their support for this quiz is much appreciated. Many thanks to the following local businesses who donated prizes for the raffle: Abbey Garage, Pillbox Pharmacy, Mr G’s, Sean Og’s, Shannon’s Corner, O’Neill’s Sports, Rooney’s Butcher, Star Bingo Bundoran, McGinley’s Bar, William Doogan, Slevin’s Department Store, Centra, Pearse O’Neill’s and Diamond Deals. Their support is much appreciated and hopefully in the run up to Christmas these businesses will be supported. Thanks to all who supported the quiz taking part on the night, and those who were unable to attend but bought tickets for the raffle. Finally thanks to Karl Duggan who did a great job setting such an enjoyable and interesting quiz.

We wish all a happy and peaceful Christmas and every good wish for 2015.

Home-Coming quiz
Once you have Christmas over you, why not come out for our Home-Coming Quiz on Sunday December 28th at 9pm in Dicey Reilly’s. There will be a couple of audio-visual rounds as usual with funds go to support the work of Aodh Ruadh.

Shop local

We encourage all club members to keep their trade local at this time of year. Local businesses are generous in their backing for the club, and without their support Aodh Ruadh would be much diminished.

Drink sensibly

We have a leaflet produced by the Alcohol Forum on practical tips for making the most of the festive season on aodhruadh.org. It’s a time of year when alcohol misuse can cause much misery, so please take a moment to consider the points in this leaflet.

Nollaig shona

Aodh Ruadh wishes all associated with the club and everyone in the wider Ballyshannon community a happy, peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
