THE Hol­ly­wood Fair Com­mit­tee do­nated in ex­cess of €25,000 to lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions and clubs who play an im­por­tant role in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Each year the pro­ceeds of the fair are handed out to eleven main or­gan­i­sa­tions, most of whom are also an in­stru­men­tal part of the fair’s con­tin­ued suc­cess.

The pre-1950s ru­ral her­itage theme of the fair has proved a real hit with peo­ple and many who at­tend the event em­brace the spirit of the oc­ca­sion and dress-up in pre-1950s at­tire.

The pre­sen­ta­tion night took place at Hol­ly­wood National School and was fol­lowed by some light re­fresh­ments and snacks.

Among this year’s re­cip­i­ents were Mu­sic Un­der the Stars, St Kevin’s Ju­ve­nile GAA Club, Val­ley­mount Church, Hol­ly­wood Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, the Church of Ire­land, Hol­ly­wood GAA Club, Hol­ly­wood National School, Hol­ly­wood Par­ish ad Balt­in­glass Hos­pi­tal.

John O’Neill, Chair­per­son of the Hol­ly­wood Fair Com­mit­tee, said: ‘I would like to thank ev­ery­one who contributed to the great suc­cess of this year’s fair. Even the in­clement weather on the day of the sheep show didn’t have any real im­pact and vast num­bers of peo­ple still turned out.

‘I hope all the or­gan­i­sa­tions get great ben­e­fit from the money we do­nated to them.’

The Hol­ly­wood Fair AGM takes place on Saturday, Novem­ber 4, at the Hol­ly­wood Com­mu­nity Cen­tre at 7 p.m.. Al are welcome to at­tend.
