Monster 25 Card drive: 
There was a great tradition in almost all rural areas of Ireland of people going round to their neighbour’s houses for a game of cards with twenty five the preferred game. Many a great friendship started around those card tables. We are trying to revive this tradition in Inniskeen by asking you to play a game or host a game in your house with the winner going forward to the Grand final in the Marquee at Páirc Grattan on Monday 7th May 2012 during the McArdle Skeath sponsored May weekend festival with the first person getting three corks winning €300 the second winning €100 and all the others at the final table winning €50. If you would like to play or host a game text or phone Raymond Finnegan at 087 9729012 and he will get you a game or give you a ticket to play for in your own house. 

The deadline for club membership is the 30th of April, anyone who hasn’t already paid their membership please contact any committee member.
