Fisherstown Hunt

The Fisherstown Hunt took place in Athy, Co Kildare on the 27th October 2014 and our thanks to Karen and Keith Grainger and the hunt organisers for choosing the I.H.S. to benefit from this wonderful fundraiser. We would also like to thank Mary Byrne who put a lot of time and effort into the event. Our very own Harry and Molly Grainger (ages 6 & 9 years) had the honour of officially leading the hunt to the starting point and cut the ribbon with Cllr Martin Miley Jr. The Hunt started and finished at Purcells Bridge House, where everyone then gathered for a great night of prizes and entertainment. Our thanks to Gary Sheehan for providing the music and to Purcell\’s for providing the refreshments and to the generosity of everyone who supported this fundraiser.  As the night went on, a raffle and bucket collection took place. Everyone gave generously and an amazing €1,758 was raised in total. Well done everyone!
