A Night at the Oskars 

St. Brigid’s GAA Club are doing major improvements of our facilities including installing flood lights on our third pitch, building a weights room and upgrading of our dressing rooms. These enhancements will greatly improve our grounds.

To help towards these investments we are running a fundraising event 

“A Night at the Oskars” on Saturday 9th June in the Hodson Bay Hotel.

This involves producing 7 movies of ten-minute duration which will be then screened on the night.
We are now looking for volunteers to take part in this fundraising event.
No acting experience is required, the production company will provide scripts and professional training for everyone.
We are having an information night with the production company on Wednesday 21st February at 9pm in the clubhouse. We are asking anyone interested to come along to find out more. 

This is guaranteed to be fun for all involved.

St. Brigid’s GAA Club hope that with your help we can make the St. Brigid’s Oskar’s a huge success.
