KILFLYNN CANCER SUPPORT GROUP ANNUAL TABLE QUIZ
Are you thinking of supporting a Cancer Charity this Christmas? Then why not support the Kilflynn Cancer Support Group, which is holding its annual table quiz during the Christmas season. The event itself takes place on Saturday night, December 28th at 9pm and, as usual, will be a simulcast between Parker’s Pub and Herbert’s Bar. Conor and Daragh Breen will help with the questions and provide musical entertainment. The quiz has been an annual event since 2004 and for the majority of those years the beneficiaries of our efforts have been Recovery Haven, Kerry Hospice and Kerry Cancer Support. We will continue to support these worthy charities again this year. As well as being a great fundraiser, the quiz has become an integral part of Christmas celebrations in Kilflynn, with local families returning each year. The fun filled quiz night is not all about answering questions, as there are numerous auctions and raffles, for which the organizers would be grateful to receive any donations. Maybe you could ask a business you regularly deal with for some item that we might raffle or sell on the night. For example, vouchers are particularly useful as the buyer can then purchase what they themselves might like. Also, if you have any unwanted presents don’t put them in the attic; give them to us to raise much-needed funds for our charities. If interested please contact John Flaherty on (087) 2352753. Any donations can be handed in to Parker’s Pub, Herbert’s Bar and shop and Irish Truck and Trailer. Anyone who might like to lend a hand on the night itself please let us know. As always, the organisers thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you again on the night!

ABBEYDORNEY/KILFLYNN CARE GROUP
Held it’s Christmas Party on Sunday 8th December in Ballyroe Heights Hotel, Tralee.  A very large number of people attended. A sincere thanks to all who donated spot prizes that made very enjoyable for our senior citizens. Thanks to Ballyroe Heights Hotel for a beautiful meal, to Ann and Maria for the great entertainment.
