We hope that you all enjoyed your week.
On Friday night last the club held its annual Table Quiz in the Dapp Inn, Nenagh. This has always been a great club event over the years and this year again proved very successful. Yet again there were some very testing questions set by our quizmaster, Tom Butler(Thanks Tom!) and also thanks to his lovely wife Ann for doing all the hard work in the background sorting out the scores. A big well done to Neil Gallagher and team who were victorious on the night. We would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who donated spot prizes for the evening: Malachy Dorris – Lough Derg Chocolates, Pat Bergin – Nenagh Picture Framing, Selina Hynes – Select Catering, Donal O’Connor – O’Connor’s Supermarket, Kenyon St., J. Moynans bike shop, Walsh’s Stationery, James Kelly of Una Powell’s Pub, Dermot Dolan of Ger Gavins and Pearse Finn of Ryan’s Chemist for 1st and 2nd place prizes. Also another big thank you to our hosts Frank and Susan Maloney of the Dapp Inn, for a most generous donation.
The weather wasn’t kind to us at all this weekend and the majority of members hid inside but there were a few brave souls that ventured out and braved the elements so well done lads and few others that deserted us in search of warmer climes! Our club chairman even made a new friend… 😀 Have a look at the images and see if ye can tell the difference of those that braved the Irish weather and those that didn’t! Hopefully next week won’t be too bad but there is a cold snap forecast so be safe out there!!
