Ardscoil appealing to all to pitch in

BIG Night at The Regency next Friday. Ardscoil Ris are staging The Kube (8.pm).

It's a fund-raiser towards a pitch development at the famous school that has seen many distinguished Dubs walk its corridors.

Ardscoil have been fund-raising for four years. They are creeping ever closer to the magic sum of €185,000.

"The new pitch is badly needed," says Principal Mark Neville, who pays tribute to past pupils and the local business community for their generosity.

Brian Donnelly of Swan Plant Hire has presented a cheque of €5,000 to the school (see right). And Swan Plant Hire have also donated €5,000 Euro of top-quality garden equipment, which will be auctioned off on the night.

There will also be a raffle with some excellent prizes. Tickets cost €20 Euro. And they will be available at The Regency Hotel, Drumcondra on the night.
