- The competition will be run over 12 ends
- There will be a draw for teams and an entry fee of €5 will be charged for each session
- Tea and biscuits will be available to all participants throughout the two competitions
- (Small) prizes for winners!
There will also be a raffle on the day.
Entries can be submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to Pat McDonagh 086 3554723 or Mary Kenny 087 6440062.
The closing date is 13 March 2019 and will be entered on a first come basis.

We do hope you can join us on 20 March and we look forward to seeing you then.

UGA Irish Project
UGA Irish Project is a Carlow based charity, The UGA Irish Project has been supporting Bbaale Landing site, a remote village on the shores of Lake Victoria In Southern Uganda, since 2013.
The community now has the benefit of clean drinking water, an eco sanitation block, twice monthly visits from a doctor, a fishing boat and a piece of land to grow vegetables. We are hoping to buy a second fishing boat for the community and also help them start a pineapple farm.
The charity has also built a ‘temporary’ primary school which has 5 classrooms, a Kitchen, a lunchroom, 3 toilets, and a fenced playground. It employs 5 leachers and has over 80 pupils.
Your donations are greatly appreciated. Every cent goes to Uganda – we have no offices, no staff, no salaries.
Every year a group of volunteers travel to Uganda to help support the various ongoing projects. They pay for their own flights and accommodation and fundraise for the charity.
