Last Christmas the Ballinasloe 12 Pubs charity event took place for the 6th year running, in which this year all proceeds would go to the Special Care Baby Unit in Portiuncla University Hospital. The event took place in numerous pubs all over town two days before Christmas day itself.
Many local businesses around town donated some fantastic raffle prizes for the night, with all proceeds going toward the charity kitty, along with the tickets prices bought by locals for the event itself. Overall the event raised an outstanding €2,100, which brings the total tally of the fundraising over the past six years to over €10,000 for local charities.
The 2017 Committee of John Mulvihill (An Táin Bar), Eoghan Clogher (Taughmaconnell), Céiteach Mac Stiofán (Ahascragh), and Niall Houlihan (Creagh) would like to thank the local businesses of Ballinasloe for donating such worthy raffle prizes on the night and to the people of Ballinasloe and surrounding areas who donated so generously on the night.
