Come Dine with Me

Saturday, July 1 promises to be a great night. This novel fundraiser has the potential to involve a huge number of people.

It works like this: 

- The club is seeking generous hosts to hold a dinner party at their house at their own expense.

- We are particularly seeking the parents of current players to volunteer.  

- The host invites friends or family around and charges €25 a head - this money is passed to the Club.

- The dinner commences around 6.30pm - 7.00pm

- Between 11pm & Midnight a complimentary taxi will take you and your guests to the GAA for the After Party.

- During the night hosts will be encouraged to share videos and photos on our social media

- The snaps will be collated and shown in the Pavilion along with the Judging & Prize Giving.

- There will be music & entertainment along with a raffle and lots of prizes for participants.
