An Ireland rugby jersey signed by Brian O’Driscoll and Paul O’Connell will be the star attraction up for auction at the Annanough GAA Tea Party in Vicarstown Community Hall this Saturday, June 7.
The old-style American Tea Party is sure to be a big hit in the community with all funds raised going to the local GAA club. As well as the Ireland rugby jersey there is also a Dublin football jersey signed by the entire squad, a signed Kilkenny hurling jersey and a weekend hotel break up for auction.
And in addition to the auction, which will be conducted by local auctioneer John Hennessy, entertainment on the night will be provided by the Grainne Buggy School of Dancers with music from the well known band Midlife Crisis. Tickets for the night cost €10.
A number of hosts are already signed up but there is still room for plenty more, according to Annanough GAA chairman Bobby Miller.
“Hosts organise their table of ten people and bring their own food and drink. Hosts can be one person or a couple of people coming together and a table can be made up of family, friends or work colleagues. We will accommodate groups as best as we can no matter what size they are.
“This is an important fundraiser for the club but it is also a social night for the club and it should be a good occasion,” he said.
