Laragh Christmas Tree Lighting

We would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who came to the table quiz last night. We had an unbelievable 33 tables. It was fantastic to see the amazing support that our community gives the Christmas lights every year. We have so many people to thank but firstly to Lynham’s Hotel Laragh who allowed us to take over the bar and restaurant and rearrange tables to accommodate so many people. Nothing was a problem and they also provided hot food for everyone. Thank you to management and staff.

Thanks also to Ger Duffy for providing the sound equipment and our MC Damien Hanlon who kept everything going. The hardest job was left to Caitriona Merrigan, Maria Merrigan, and Lucia Klobucnikova who were very busy ensuring the scores were all up to date so well done ladies it was really appreciated. Thanks also to Lizzie Fanning for managing the floor and selling so many tickets.

We had an amazing amount of prizes for the table quiz and we would like to thank everyone who organized these or donated something themselves.
