Fri, Oct 19, 2018

So October is nearly finished and the onslaught of bad weather that November brings is just around the corner. Staying indoors and staying warm is probably what most of us wish to do but while that might be good for keeping the tootsies toasty, it is not good for our waistbands.

Monster Charity Auction this Sunday – Kiltormer GAA Complex

Wed, Oct 17, 2018

Kiltormer GAA complex in East Galway is the place to be this Sunday! What is happening…….well a Monster Charity Auction with all the trimmings! From BBQ, children’s entertainment, face painting, cake sale, Bric-A-Brac and fashion corner it going to be a hive of activity. The auction has been organized to create safe and accessible car parking at the local national school which currently only has six car spaces, forcing parents to park on both sides of a busy main road. The LCDG is leading the project and needs to raise €100,000 to make their dreams a reality. The Monster Auction is the main fundraiser for the project and so the group is calling for strong support locally.
