Walsh Island Foroige

The Foroige Club wishes to thank all those who made the recent race night in The Hoppers Bar a real success. A total of €1547.30 was raised for the club and a great night was supported and enjoyed by many.

Thanks to Sean McCann, Maurice Matthews and Kevin McGrath ‘The Bookies!’ and Liam Bermingham ‘Sound Man!’. Thank you to all those who sponsored horse’s and jockey’s prior to the event and also to the race card sponsors – Gill/Ian Jones, Ark Equestrian (Eddie Farrell), Bob Flynn, Toro (Ross Fitzpatrick), Walsh Island school staff, Fergus Corcoran, Moye Valley Meats and The Hoppers Bar.

It was a great effort by everyone for the benefit of the village youth. Well done!
