Our fundraising “Beach Party” held in O’Casey’s on Friday night last was a great success. There was a huge turnout and we would just like to say a few thank you’s.

First of all, to all who bought tickets to support us, and to all who turned up on the night, to Mikey for the great music, to all who sponsored prizes. We would like to say a huge thank you to Ann Casey for hosting the night and for the beautiful food as always. Ann is also one of our main sponsors, again thank you to all our sponsors.

Well done to our hardworking committee who gave up their time in organising the night.
