‘Beat the Banker’ – Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail hosts major fundraiser for new school

Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail will be hosting the unique gameshow event ‘Beat the Banker’ in association with Lee Gooch Productions in the Redcastle Hotel, Moville on Saturday 22nd February at 8.00pm.

The Gaelscoil is raising funds to help with the school’s relocation to the old St. Joseph’s Boys’ School in Moville this year. The Irish medium primary school was set up over 12-years ago by local parents.

Lee Gooch, the popular Highland Radio presenter, developed ‘Beat the Banker’ to deliver an exhilarating game show experience and a great night’s entertainment. ‘Beat the Banker’ gives five people the chance to win up to €1,000 in a game that will test the nerves of the coolest contestant.

The format for the night is simple – buy a ticket for €10.00 and on the night tickets are drawn to determine who plays fro up to €1,000 in cash!
The ‘Beat the Banker’ game comes with a professionally designed TV-style set, Lee Gooch as host and ‘Patricia’ the comedian – who ensures that the audience enjoys a total entertainment package. Complete with full screenplay and audio-visual effects, the atmosphere is guaranteed. The only question is – which contestant will be brave enough to ignore the banker and hold out for the jackpot?

Gráinne Nic Robhartaigh, School Principal, said: “This is the first time since we founded the school that Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail has undertaken a major fundraising project. The funds will be used to help with the relocation to the former Boys’ School in Moville. This will be a big benefit to the local area, not just the Gaelscoil.”

A number of main sponsors have come on board to support the Gaelscoil event – Ace Catering, Aviva Healthcare, Dedalus Architecture, Holmes Coaches, Moville Group Practice, Canny & Doherty’s Centra Supermarket and Forecourt, Moville, and Supervalu Supermarket, Carndonagh. Eamon Gillen & Sons Supermarket, Moville, will sponsor each of the five games.

‘Beat the Banker will take place on Saturday 22nd of February at 8.00pm in the Redcastle Hotel, Moville. Tickets are €10.00 and are available to purchase from Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail 074 93 85762, Gillens Supermarket, Redcastle Hotel Reception or call Annmarie Doherty on 086 604 1910.
