€1000 winners!

Recently a draw was made to pick the winner of the €1000 at the end of a two-year donation to the refurbishment fund.

This fundraising was to turn the 2nd squash court into meeting and activity rooms, to allow for talks, classes, meetings  etc to take place in Askamore.

170 people and organisations locally helped in this long-term fundraiser, donating €240 over 2 years. The draw at the end was a means of thanking people for their support.

The winners of the €1000 are Liz and Mossie O’Rourke, Bolinrush.

Congratulations to them, and thanks to them and to all who donated to this fundraiser.Presenting Refurbishment cheque Mossie and Liz O'RourkeJim Gilbert, chairman of Askamore Refurbishment Committee presents the cheque for €1000 to Liz and Mossie O’Rourke in the newly refurbished Askamore Activity Centre

Askamore Community Council Raffle – Results

Askamore Community Council ran a Grand Raffle over the past number of months as a fundraiser to pay off the remaining debt on the newly refurbished Activity Centre. This was deliberately aimed outside the half parish of Askamore, as people in the half parish had already generously supported the refurbishment effort.

The draw took place in Askamore Activity Centre yesterday, October 27th at 5pm, with Fr. Power drawing the prize winning tickets.

Winners of the prizes are as follows:

1st Prize: 2 weeks self-catering holiday for 2 people in Croatia: – Patrick Skelton, 10, Castle Manor, Ferns

2nd Prize: Weekend in 4 star hotel in Ireland: – Carol Doyle, Villa Pio, Ballinacoola, Craanford

3rd Prize: €100: – Bernadette Moulds, Coolbawn, Ferns
