A school is getting closer to their much awaited community playground - but they've one more big step - to raise some cash!

In order to get them where they need to be Kilgobnet National School will hold a table quiz at The Inn Between Bar, Beaufort, on Friday, December 2.

The event takes place from 7.30pm and it costs €40 for a table with a maximum of four people.

The school has already successfully secured a substantial grant for the playground, but is required to find a significant percentage itself, therefore fundraising is essential for this exciting project to come to completion.

There will be generous cash prizes to be won for top scorers, as well as plenty of exciting spot prizes to be awarded to those with a little bit of luck on their side, including a voucher for a night’s bed and breakfast at the Randles Hotel, Killarney!

There will also be a raffle on the night for more chances to go home with a prize. The Inn Between Bar is also kindly sponsoring finger food on the night.

“We were delighted to be informed recently that we were successful in our application to CLÁR for a playground on the grounds of the school, serving its pupils and the local community," Maura O’Connor, Principal of Kilgobnet National School, said.

"We were aware of the need for a playground in the local community, as we know playgrounds are essential to children for their physical and emotional well-being and development. In order to proceed with the project we are engaging in a number of fundraisers to help raise funds to cover the remainder of the costs involved. It’s a very exciting time for the school and the community as a whole.”
