West Waterford Athletic Club Juvenile Notes
Aislinn’s Fund Raising Quiz a Huge Success
Minnies was definitely the place to be last Friday night as a there was a big turn
out to support Aislinn O’Regan in her bid to raise the funds necessary to travel
to the UAE to compete in the IWAS World Games. Thirty four teams competed
in the quiz and the honours went to West Waterford’s team of Mark and Niall
Blackwell, Ann Dunford and Karen Ryan. It was really a fun night out and the
music rounds really got the crowd singing and dancing. Our thanks to Bob
O’Brien who really set the tone for the night and to his team of helpers who
worked so efficiently doing the scores in record time. Thanks to our generous
sponsors we had lots of spot prizes and raffle prizes. Between the table money,
raffle and several donations from those unable to attend, the quiz raised 2,600
euro which will see Aislinn on the plane to the UAE next month. A huge thank
you from West Waterford AC juvenile committee to all who supported this
