Camp Notes – 27th June 2016



Camp Drama Group will be back in the Old School  on 14th, 15th 16th. July  performing their hilariously funny and original play Where’s the Missus written by Val Sweeney.  It’s a good story line with lots of fun and excitement on stage. Tickets available at O Dwyers Mace, E10.00 each. So to be sure of a seat, mark those dates in your diary and book early.


The biggest annual family fun event of the year, the Camp Cash Cow will be held on Sunday 31st. July in Camp Community Sportsfield.

Our biggest community fundraiser too, the novelty event has caught the imagination of locals

and tourists alike who wait with baited breath on the cow to do her business on the day which everybody is hoping  will happen in their grid number,  earning them a cash prize of E500.  Tickets available from members of Camp Community Council,  if you’re not in, you can’t win, so be sure to buy a ticket  !  As well the cow event, Camp Community Council will also have other attractions for the children and since the date of the Cash Cow this year  will coincide with a Kerry football final there will be a big screen in the hall for all of you football fans !  And a north Kerry Hurler has thrown in the ball too in support of Camp. Tadgh O Halloran is challenging us in the Penalty Shoot Out Event, using a Hurley, everybody, young and old from 5 to 105 are invited to try their hand, celebrities, politicians you are all welcome to Camp Cash Cow and lets say our local postman won’t be delivering letters that weekend, he’ll be blocking goals for Camp Community Council.  And don’t be a hurler on the ditch, its sure to be great fun on the day !   Camp Community Council are looking for volunters help us out running events on the day, its just one day in the year and the funds raised go towards our community developments in the Community Sports field which are available to everybody all the year round.  So please if you can a few hours, it will be very much appreciated.  


A fundraising initiative has been set up to help Hannah Falvey, a little  two and a half  year old girl from Annascaul with a rare condition which makes her unable to communicate with anybody.  With the help of an Eye Gaze Computer, Hannah will be given the gift of communication. This computer costs in the region of E12,000 and Hannah has been tested and is a perfect candidate to benefit from it.       Two family friends are undertaking A 70km fundraising walk and there are sponsorship cards in all the local business premises where you can contribute. Also you can make a donation and read more about Hannah’s story if you visit – 

Wishing Nancy, Brendan, Lily and all the Falvey family success in this venture to enable Hannah to engage with her family and the world around her into the future. Please support !
