Bingo, Bongo, call it what you will. We run every week without fail. We are blessed that we can not only run it on our all-weather area therefore being able to cater for the rougher nights or we can use our pitch in the better weather. It is unique that we are able to do that. Making sure that even on the worst of days you can win a few pound.
Our drive in bingo was set up by Jamie Farrell in 2020 during the first lockdown. With the help of Tony Halpin, Ger Roche, Bis Halpin, Nicky Finn, Martin Kearney, Rebecca Farrell, Greg Donaghy and Nicky’s and Martina's son's our bingo wouldn’t be what it is. We also have to acknowledge the effort that our Men's team put in to the bingo with them setting up a roster to make sure they have people there to park cars on a weekly basis.
However, thanking all the above is practically useless because without our amazing and growing weekly crowd our bingo just wouldn't be what it is today. Seeing familiar and new faces weekly puts a smile on our Face not just because it brings in much needed fundraising funds into the club, but it creates a hive of activity around the club putting it back in the forefront of the community and to see such crowds really makes us proud each week.
Our bingo has allowed us to start investing in the infrastructure of the club. We have fixed leaks in the roof, got a safety railing with Toe path added to the front of the building, Painting inside the dressing rooms, getting lights for our training pitch among others.
We hope to continue this into the future and continue to bring smiles to the people of the surrounding area and it gives us even greater pleasure giving them a few pound to add to those smiles.
Our Bingo takes place every Thursday @7:30pm in our complex.
