2020 Christmas Raffle Results

Monday, December 21st, 2020

The draw for the 2020 Christmas Raffle took place in the surroundings of the old Pavilion at the Mardyke on Sunday, 20th December, at 8 p.m. 

There was an overwhelming response to this year’s raffle with members and supporters getting involved in the organisation and purchase of tickets which was great to see. With the proceeds going towards a worthwhile cause and some fantastic prizes up for grabs, then anticipation was high ahead of the big draw.

MC on the night Andy Wootton was ably assisted by Talha Kayani, Kevin O’Sullivan and Abdul Jabbar Younus who took care of proceedings to announce the various winners of the raffle. The winners were selected by using an online number randomizer to void any suggestions of impropriety or Russian interference! πŸ™‚ 

The winners were drawn in reverse order starting with the 10th prize and working its way up to the main prize of a 2 night B&B stay at The River Lee Hotel.

The winners were as follows:

  1. 2-night stay at The River Lee Hotel – Bilal Ahsan
  2. Complimentary Club Membership – Veena O’Sullivan
  3. €150 Meadows & Byrne Voucher – Abubakar Saddique
  4. €150 Vanilla Boutique Voucher – Tara Rahman
  5. Sunglasses from Kennedy’s Opticians – Matt Reed
  6. 12-month Pass for Blarney Castle & Gardens – Michael Stout
  7. Pirahna Cricket equipment – Steve Ross
  8. Selection of wines – Ross Durity
  9. Afternoon Tea at The Metropole Hotel – Matt Reed
  10. Uni Salon hair products – Desmond Lucey

The winners will be contacted individually to arrange delivery of the various prizes.

A huge thanks to all involved in organising and taking part in the quiz. Our original target of €1,500 was smashed with the club raising € 2,705 towards the construction of two permanent net bays in the southeastern corner of the grounds with work due to start in the spring once the ground dries up.

Following the successful first instalment of the Great Lockdown Quiz, it will be returning on Saturday night, 16th May, to test your general knowledge and have a bit of fun in the process.

Once again, the quiz will be hosted on Zoom and a link will be sent to everyone who purchases a ticket. All participants will be broken into teams of 3 or 4 so if you want to be in a particular team then please add it to the note when you purchase your ticket. If you wear your club shirt then your team will automatically get a bonus point!

The winners will receive a €50 bar voucher which can be used to purchase pool tokens, club cap or used merely as a bar tab plus other great spot prizes up for grabs!

Tickets are €5 per person with all proceeds going to the ongoing running of the club and towards expenses for any potential cricket season.

80’s Discotech at the Dyke

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Something different for a Saturday night in April… an 80’s themed fancy dress party with cocktails and plenty of 80’s surprises throughout the night and also help raise some money for the cricket club for the upcoming season. Everyone welcome to enjoy a night of reliving the cheese-tastic 80’s with some great anthems and tasty cocktails.

For those who have any particular favourite 80’s anthems or TV show themes… feel free to post them on the Facebook event page wall to allow those poor souls that are unfamiliar with the cheesy greatness of that decade to develop some ideas for their outfits.

A voucher of dinner in Sutton’s Bar (Rochestown Park Hotel) is on offer for the best dressed male and female on the night!

For further information please contact the cricket club on 021-4272569 or follow us on either Twitter at Cork_CountyCC or on Facebook at Cork Countycc
