“Tie the knot… or not” fundraiser for Borrisoleigh Playground 30th October

Borrisoleigh Playground Development Group are putting on a one act comedy called “Tie the knot…or not” which has been written by Paula Stapleton. This will be held in Younges, The Ragg, on Sunday October 30th commencing at 8.30pm sharp. Then after laughing yourselves silly you can dance the night away with music from Silver Dollar and later a disco with DJ Lorcan Ryan.

Borrisoleigh Playground Development Group was set up by a group of parents who want to refurbish the current playground in Borrisoleigh. The playground was established in 2001 and very little has been done to it since. Having consulted with playground equipment providers we have learned just how expensive an undertaking we have ahead of us.

So, in a final fundraising event, we are putting on a one act comedy called “Tie the knot...or not” which has been written by Paula Stapleton. This will be held in Younges, The Ragg, on Sunday October 30th commencing at 8.30pm sharp.

In September, in conjunction with Borrisoleigh Cycling Club’s 80K cycle, we organised a sponsored 40K cycle. The proceeds of both cycles went towards the playground refurbishment. This brought in a total of €4000. We are also hoping to get funding from the Leader Programme because a total of 35K is needed to fully equip the playground.

So, in a final fundraising event, we are putting on a one act comedy called “Tie the knot…or not”. Put it in your diary!  Younges, The Ragg, Sunday October 30th at 8.30pm sharp. Tickets are on sale locally or at the door on the night for €20 for adults, €10 for students. A great night of entertainment is promised.
