Thanks to everybody who came along to Hanrahan’s Bar on Friday night, January 6, to take part in a fundraising table quiz organised for the “Waterford Lions Club Christmas Hamper Appeal”. We were delighted with the turnout of 15 tables. The winners were Marian McCarthy, Miriam Kiely, Nicky Windsorsmith and Rachel Winsorsmith, the only all ladies team of the night. How appropriate, as the day being “Nollag na mBan”.

Great credit must to go Pat Hearn who was Quiz Master for the event, interesting as usual. The total takings amounting to €E655 were handed over by the proprietor Mrs. Mary Morrissey to Mr. Donal Connolly, President of the Lions Club.

A raffle on the night for a Super Hamper was held and the winners were Jill and Andrew Winross from Lackendarra.

Looking forward to next year’s event, which has already been organised for Friday January 4, 2013, all going to plan. Another great night can be expected.


Welcome home to Alice Burke, Touraneena, who is recovering from a recent illness. We hope to see Alice out and about very soon. Alice would like to thank all those who visited her in hospital and sent cards and presents
