Abbey Church Restoration: “Night at the Dogs”
13 JUL 2016
The Abbey Church has been undergoing a grand internal makeover over the past six months or so. All the painting and rewiring was completed in the first stage, followed by varnishing of the pews and recovering of the kneelers. The beautiful new floor tiling installation has just been completed in recent weeks, leaving the altar carpet as the next project for upgrading.
The Restoration Committee have been delighted with the public response so far and to keep the project on target, there will be a ‘Night at the Dogs’ fundraiser in the Galway Greyhound Stadium on the Saturday of Race Week, 30 July.
We are very grateful to the main sponsor, Supermac’s, for their generous contribution and also to local businesses for sponsoring races on the night.
€20 tickets are now on sale at the Abbey Office and each ticket includes admission, a race programme and entry into the ‘Buster Race’ with a €1,000 prize for the winning ticket.
For more information, please call the Abbey Office on 091 562518.
