A con­struc­tive fundraiser with a dif­fer­ence has been ce­mented into the lo­cal cal­en­dar in Ballyhack and Arthurstown.

The King’s Bay Inn have raised the bar with their brick fundraiser which in­volves peo­ple buy­ing a brick upon which they can have their name etched – all to raise money for Ballyhack NS. 930 bricks in to­tal have been sourced and they will be used to con­struct a wall in the beer gar­den at the pop­u­lar Arthurstown pub and cafe.

King’s Bay Inn owner Mary Lawlor said: ‘ They can put their own name, their grand­child’s name or their dog’s name on the bricks which are go­ing up this week and cost €5 each. We’ve al­ready had one per­son in who bought 13 to name the en­tire fam­ily.’

The to­tal sum raised is ex­pected to come to €4,500.

The red bricks can be bought from the bar which Mary opened last year and which is about to have a new per­ma­nent fea­ture in its beer gar­den.
