The directors of the Athenaeum and the children, parents and teachers of St Senan’s Primary School Autism Unit, wish to thank everyone who helped make the Hundreds and Thousand Raffle such a great success by selling tickets, donating prizes, attending coffee mornings and actively promoting the cause. At a informal function in Enniscorthy Castle this morning, 16th January at 11.00am, the tickets were expertly drawn from the drum by a number of children from St. Senan’s, namely:
Jessica Rossiter, Seán O’Toole, Jack Connick, Mason Coffey, Jake O’Neill, Óisín Murphy, Anthony Hannigan, Tadhg Breen, Charlotte Lee, Kaylum Kenny, Conor Kelly-Foley and Isabel Walsh, and they drew the winning tickets for all those listed below.
Paddy Byrne opened proceedings as the clock chimed eleven o’clock and welcomed everyone and sending best wishes to Donncha Ó Dúlaing who was unable to join us for the draw.
Tony McClean was director of tombola duties and facilitated our ticket pickers and Oona Rackard, Principal of St. Senan’s Primary School, closed the ceremony with thanks to everyone who made the event possible saying what a heartening display of community cooperation the experience has been.
Tea and coffee and biscuits were then provided in the old kitchen by the Castle staff who hosted the attendance with aplomb. To them many thanks. It is a wonderful venue for this kind of social gathering. We look forward to our next venture.
