UPPERCHURCH DROMBANES FASTEST FAMILY FUNDRAISER

Huge thanks to all who contributed in any way to our “Night at the Dogs and Fittest Family Run” last Saturday in Thurles Greyhound Stadium. First off thanks to all our runners and families who were brave enough to run a lap each of the greyhound track in a relay race and so kindly gave up their time to take part. Secondly thanks so much to all who purchased tickets for the event and contributed to the auction on the night, its your generous contribution that makes an event like last Saturday night such a success. Thirdly thanks to Thurles greyhound track staff for their facilities and also to our hard working committee and their families for their efforts to ensure the night was a great success. Finally well done to all the competitors The Greenes, The Grants, The Gleesons, The Ryans of the Line, The Harrington-Pamplins, The Ryan Farmers, The O Dwyer-Quinlans, The Ryan Giants, The Shanahans and The Shortt-Bourkes.. you were all winners for taking part and played a big part in making the event a big success!! Fastest lady on Saturday night was Kelley Harrington and the fastest family were The Ryan Giants team of Larry, Norita and Matt. It’s two in a row for Matt who was the fastest man in last years event! Once again many thanks to all concerned for making the night a huge success.
