Islandeady Social Card Players Group

Islandeady Cards Club
 
Mission Statement of Group:
The focus of the Islandeady Social Cards Club is to bring people together in a social and fun atmosphere on a weekly basis, each Monday Night from October to the end of April in the evenings, usually from 09:00pm-11:00pm.
 
Brief History:
The group started up in 2005 and has grown in numbers since. It is run by three people who love to see others enjoy a night out and get pleasure from such a club that is available to the parish and also the surrounding communities. The Islandeady Card games on a Monday Night is of the most popular venues of this kind in the area.
 
Current Goals and Achievements:
Each year we present a “CARD PLAYER OF THE YEAR”.   Winners so far have been June Costello in 2005/2006 and Willie Heneghan in 2006/2007. Winning this award is a goal for all who attend during the season. We also hold special nights when we donate the proceeds of games to charity. So far the Special Olympics, Mayo/Roscommon Hospice and numerous local charities have benefited from our support. The ages of people attending are usually between 20 and 90 years of age.

The Cards are back for 2013/14 in the Community Centre each Monday Night from 09:00pm-11:00pm with Tea and a Scone available afterwards. This is open to anybody who would like to play cards in a friendly, sociable environment.
