Plenty of cheer at winter wonderland Christmas Fair

Valleymount GAA Grounds were transformed into a Winter Wonderland for a special Christmas Fair.

A wide range of events took place, from carol singing to an elves workshop.

There were also plenty of stalls for guests to visit, offering the perfect opportunity to stock up on Christmas gifts for family and loved ones.

Santa Claus made sure he could make an appearance, despite how busy he and his helpers are at this time of year.

A magic trail led to his magical grotto and the big man in red was happy to announce that no local girls or boys made it on to the naughty list for this year.

The winners of the raffle were Niamh Reid, Sadie Miley, Anthony Miley and Caroline Cahill.

Meanwhile the fourth and final €100 fundraising draw for the club was also held recently. Christy Miley and Deirdre Miley both won €500. Brendan Hughes Snr won €100, as did Helen and John Keogh.

Ann Mooney won an oven and Orlaith Byrne and Jack Boud received a Valleymount Foods hamper. Emma Richardson won a McGreals hamper and Andy Farrington was the winner of a voucher from Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort. Anthony Miley won a red and white wine provided by the Hollywood Inn. The club AGM had to be cancelled and a new date will be arranged.
