Ravens ready for the Oskars

The cast from eight short versions of well known films and television shows will duke it out for 'Oskars' at a very special fundraiser for Fingal Ravens GFC, later this month.

The Crowne Plaza in Santry will host the fun event on June 29.

The cast and crews for each of the films have already stepped up to the plate and are starting to raise funds for their own tilt at securing one of those 'gold' statuettes on the night.

The much beloved films and tv shows that will be either lovingly paid tribute to or butchered mercilessly on the night will be Fr Ted, Forrest Gump, Dirty Dancing, Braveheart, Bridesmaids, Sister Act and that Roddy Doyle classic, The Snapper.

Each team has been set a target for fundraising prior to the event and that is the reason why there were a lot of people in curious clerical garb at Kettles County House Hotel recently.

That was because the cast and crew of 'Sister Act' were holding a fun quiz to support their efforts on Oskars night.

There were several nuns, priests and even a bishop in attendance but we are not sure that any of them were quite the real thing.
