Ballon/Rathoe Bingo is the mainstream fundraiser for the Hall’s debts and deserves support. Support it already gets from the 200 plus players arriving by coach, cars and Shanks’ pony from Carlow, Bunclody and Ferns in addition to local support.
The hall is a magnificent venue being bright, cheerful with plenty of space, wheelchair friendly and with a shop for snacks, drinks and the ubiquitous marker pens. Then there is the hatch which sells tea and coffee.
The jackpot stops at €3000 and its ticket is called about half time. If not won, then a second jackpot is started so there is always a lot to play for. Books are sold in a multiple of options being suitable for all ages and the last sheet of the evening has a prize of €250
