Ploughing ahead with a big night in store

 

THE weather played spoilsport – with a vengeance – at this month’s South Kerry Ploughing Championships and Harvest Show in Fossa but a big night out is in the pipeline as a consolation for some of the event’s great supporters.
The committee, sponsors and friends of the Killarney Valley Vintage and Veteran Club will gather in the Travel Inn, Fossa on Saturday, October 8 for the presentation of prizes and the handing over of cheques to the four chosen charities – the Irish Pilgrimage Trust, Kerry Down Syndrome, Kerry-Cork Health Link Bus and the Kerry branch of the Irish Kidney Association.
As a number of the planned events had to be cancelled on the day, when the heavens opened, the committee still has an abundance of terrific prizes to be given away and those in attendance on the presentation night could be going home very happy.
A bumper raffle will be held at the Travel Inn and the charities will benefit from the takings. Star prizes include a weekend break in The Maritime Hotel, Bantry, a night in the five-star Europe Hotel and Resort, dinner vouchers, a fabulous hamper from Foley’s Spar Fossa, a four ball at Beaufort Golf Course and tickets to top class shows at the INEC.
The Kerry branch of the Irish Kidney Association will also be drawing the winners for their monster draw which included a stunning Ford Anglia vintage car which will be on show on the night.
The fun on Saturday, October 8 will commence at 8.00pm, there will be music and finger food and everybody is welcome.
Event chairman, Tom Leslie, has thanked everybody that attended and supported the ploughing and show on September 11, those who sponsored prizes, exhibitors and competitors and, particularly, all the volunteers who helped out on the day and in the weeks leading up to the event.
