“Raytown” Men’s Shed Race Night

And they’re off! – the Poolbeg Marina was jumping for the Race Night.

The newly christened “Raytown Men’s Shed” held a packed-out race night fundraiser at the Poolbeg Marina, on November 29th. A special projector was set up, which showed random past races run by anonymous horses. There was music, lights, free food, spot prizes, and plenty of good-natured betting – there was even a bit of karaoke. The night was a great success, raising much-needed funds for the Ringsend Men’s Shed.

Since getting a temporary site at the RICC, the Shed project is gaining real momentum, but there are still costs to cover, and hurdles to cross. Thankfully, many businesses/organisations in the area have donated some little bit to lend a hand. 

Sponsorship was given by: Poolbeg Yacht Club, Murtagh’s Hardware, Allana Homes, Educate Together, Lloyds Pharmacy, ACSK Solicitors, Eurosales, McCartan Opticians, JP Motorcycles, Grehan Printers, Susan Gregg Farrell, Brian Murphy, Cambridge FC, St. Patrick’s Rowing Club, Stella Maris Rowing Club, St. Patrick’s CYFCA, Dynorod, The Vintage Inn, Intl FCStone, Liffey Wanderers, Andy Kenny Fitness, The Merry Cobbler, NewsFour, Catherine and John Kelly, FeelFit Gyms, Cube Homes, Quality Builders Providers, RICC and Lorraine Barry, St. Andrew’s Resource Centre, L.
