FAMILIES from Lixnaw, Abbeydorney and around north Kerry are preparing to do battle in aid of Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál, Lixnaw next month.
The school, together with Trendhouse Events, is putting on a Family Gameshow at The Rose Hotel on Saturday, February 4 at 8.30pm sharp. The gameshow is based on popular television shows “Family Fortunes” and “Mr & Mrs”.
This event will see neighbouring families from Lixnaw and other areas within North Kerry competing against each other in a night of fun entertainment.
Lixnaw is known for having produced many famous and highly entertaining families over the years and it will be interesting to see which of these take to the stage on the night.
The event will attempt to raise much needed funds for necessary refurbishments to the school.
The families will be represented by four members with nine families taking to the stage. Some of the families taking part include the Gilbert Family – Lixnaw; Maunsell Family – Abbeydorney; Kelliher Family – Lixnaw; Heffernan Family – Lixnaw and Molloy Family – Lixnaw / Tralee.
The gameshow itself will include some interesting general knowledge questions before testing each family on how well they really know each other. It’s guaranteed to be a fun night’s entertainment with music after the event until late.
Tickets for the night are available from Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál Lixnaw, Foleys Gala Express, The Rose Hotel or from various committee members.
The committee would also welcome the support of any local businesses that may wish to donate towards the event in the form of advertising or sponsorship. For more information contact: Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál, Lixnaw on 066 7132600.
