RAIN FAILS TO STOP PLAY

Donegal rain does not prevent a generous turnout at our fund raising coffee morning in the Bayview hotel, in Killybegs.

Another huge thank you is in order. This time to all of Maureen and Jacqueline’s friends and family in Killybegs in County Donegal in Ireland. The town’s Bayview Hotel provided us with a venue plus unlimited tea and coffee for our Donegal coffee afternoon.

Under the organisational guidance of Marian Breslin, the aforementioned friends and relatives came up with a seemingly endless supply of home-baked cakes. Furthermore, people were not deterred from attending by the torrential rain and howling wind (Donegal summer in full swing) – which latter swirled viciously into the bar every time someone walked in off the street.

Molly did a great job writing and handing out raffle tickets. And Patrick made sure all the children present had some ‘thunder sticks’ to take home with them.  Although their parents were less impressed with these gifts than their offspring. We should have thought to sell them ear plugs in aid of LLR.

So, cake-‘creators’, tart-‘technicians’, biscuit-‘builders’, sponge-‘specialists’, loaf-‘logisticians’ and chocolate-‘champions’ all - thank you very much for helping make the event such a success.  We are delighted to reveal that despite the soggy conditions outside, but no soggy bottoms inside, we raised a staggering 900 euros-plus, in just a couple of hours! Chapeau!
