Rathcoole soccer club is holding its annual fundraising race-night on October 17th in the Sandpit Bar in Millstreet (North Cork!), and once again I have been given the unenviable task of trying to flog expensive horses to my peers – Horses cost €20 each but if ye would be interested in supporting, then going in a syndicate per horse would be perfectly ok (4 people x €5 or 5 x €4 per horse!) – just don’t go bating the shite out of each other for bigger shares of the €100 if ye do end up winning!!
There will be ten horses entered per race, with the winning Horse receiving €100 prize money. There’s no obligation to buy, so don’t feel you have to! If you could let me know if ye’ll take a horse by lunch-time tomorrow (1pm Friday 10th Oct) that would be great.
This evening’s Disciplinary Meeting in the AUL rooms in Turner’s Cross starts at 7.00pm.
