The golfing year might be coming to an end but this weekend was one of the busiest in the calendar yet. The inaugural Night at the Dogs was on Friday night and certainly it proved a great success with a great number of members and friends attending the event. Over 560 tickets were sold and Angela Clancy was the lucky recipient of the €1,000 in the bumper draw. Angela should do the euro millions this week as she won €20 in the golf club Lotto lucky dip on Wednesday night and instead of putting it in her pocket she purchased a second dogs ticket with her winnings……and this extra purchase was the lucky one.
A big THANK YOU to main sponsors St Jarlaths Credit Union Tuam and Pam Oil Barnaderg and all other sponsor their support.
