This is an important community service, and is run by a small voluntary committee who give of their time and energy to provide this vital social outlet. In addition to the regular cash prizes, at various times throughout the year the committee organise extra prizes - for example 24 Easter Eggs on Good Friday night, 24 Barm Bracks at Halloween, and almost €500 in additional cash prizes at Christmas. Raffles are also organised at both Easter and Christmas, with large hampers and other seasonal treats to be won.

Tagann busanna as áiteanna go leor.

payout of the Gamble game would be adjusted in an effort to balance the
We require volunteers to assist with running it - everything from selling books to stacking chairs - even if you can only give half an hour each week, please do get involved. If you're interested, please come along some Friday night during bingo, or contact us.
