Following the crowning of the McBride clan as the Kings of Carey in their last fundraising event of the Summer Carey Faughs have now decided that it is time that Carey had its own Mayor/Mayoress. This is a fundraising event with a difference.
Over the last few weeks members of the Parish have been short-listed down to four candidates to run for Mayor / Mayoress of Carey. The four worthy candidates are the well known;
Dolores (Do Do) Hunter, Darren (Daza) McVeigh, Catriona (Tina) Mulholland and Gerard (Cubby) McAuley.
Over the recent weeks these four hard liners have been holding small fund raising events in the Parish to raise money that will all go towards the development of the pitch.
The final of this election which will see the winner being crowned is this Friday night in Carey Hall starting at 9.30pm and will definitely be a good night of entertainment. Each candidate will present their manifest again to the audience. They will have another bash at raising more money on the night with a raffle. The candidate that raises the most money in total with all the events will be the winner.
The highlight of the night will be the crowning of the new Carey Mayor / Mayoress by our own local Chairman of Moyle District Council Mr Paudie McShane.
Paudie has been a long time supporter of the Carey Faughs and even played for the senior team in his younger years. He says “I am delighted to have the opportunity to present the Chain of Office to the worthy winner who no doubt will continue to do good work for their Club over the next year”.
The night will start at 9.30pm in Carey Hall. Compare and DJ for the night will be Carey’s own Jake Paterson who is sure to entertain the crowd for the rest of the night. Please come along and help raise money for the development of our sports grounds.
