Thank you for your kind contributions as always. There will be a Development collection taken up next Sunday (27th).

The Graan Draw: This is the last weekend to buy tickets for the Car Draw. The Draw will take place at the Dinner Dance in the Killyhevlin Hotel next Friday night at mid-night. There will be £15,000 (approx) in prizes this year. If you would like to sell a book of tickets for us, please do; we really do appreciate your help. If you have any tickets in your homes please return them at the beginning of this week. It’s a mammoth task separating all the tickets for the Draw. Please leave them in early in the week because it is difficult to do it all in the last day or two. All our helpers do this voluntarily. So please help us by returning counterfoils and money ASAP.


Dinner Dance: There may be a few Dinner Dance tickets still available early in the week. Please check with us for last minute availability. If you are coming to the Dinner Dance, we promise to run things on time. You’ll need to be at the hotel not later than 8pm. You can choose your seating then. The dinner will be served before 8.30pm. We cannot pre-book tables. It’s first come, first served.

Spot Prizes: Sincere thanks to those who have already given very valuable prizes for the night. Contact us if you have a Spot Prize and we will collect it or better still if you can leave it in at the front door of the Monastery with your name on it, we will be most grateful. Every single Spot Prize will be given away on the night.


Ticket Selling: Thanks to all those who have volunteered to sell at TESCO & DUNNES this week. We are most grateful for your time and effort for us here in The Graan.
