The young basketball players of the parish, organised by coach Maura Harte, ran an extremely successful basketball marathon on Sunday, l9th April. This venture realized substantial funds which will be put to very good use in the ongoing development of the Centre. Our thanks to Maura and to Pauline Murphy, Sinead Greally and everyone else who helped out on the day. Most of all a very special thank you to the children.

Many people came along to a Cookery Demonstration, which was given the Panel of Chefs Western Branch, in the Community Centre on Thursday 30th April. The Demonstration was preceded by a Cheese and Wine Reception and an enjoyable evening was had by all. Hopefully the Gourmet Delights were presented to appreciative families throughout the parish over the Bank Holiday weekend.

We are grateful to the Chefs for presenting their Demonstration in Claregalway, and to everyone else involved in the venture. All the people throughout the parish who bought tickets, as well as those who attended on the night, Galway Bay FM and The Tuam Herald for Media coverage, and to all who sponsored Raffle Prizes, and to the Ladies from Fás—Deirdre in particular, who did wonderful work in preparing the Centre for the occasion. Thank you everyone.
