Tick­ets on sale for 50th ‘Hurry to the Curry’

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

THE com­mu­nity of Arklow will be blow­ing the Jan­uary blues away with a great cel­e­bra­tion on Fri­day 18 as the pop­u­lar Hurry to the Curry event re­turns.

This year marks the 50th an­niver­sary of the RNLI fundrais­ing event and tick­ets are al­ready sell­ing like hot cakes.

The Arklow Bay Ho­tel will once again play host to the fundraiser which will see a mouth­wa­ter­ing ar­ray of food pre­pared by head chef Anne Lynch Mor­daunt and her vol­un­teer kitchen crew. The event started 50 years ago when the late Dan Kearon de­cided to bring a se­lec­tion of ex­otic curry and seafood dishes to the Arklow pub­lic.

The tra­di­tion caught on and to this day, the Hurry to the Curry buf­fet is much an­tic­i­pated by guests.

Mu­sic this year will be pro­vided by Grav­ity fol­lowed by a DJ to keep the party go­ing af­ter the food has been served.

Sup­port is greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by the RNLI which is run en­tirely by vol­un­teers and by funds raised.

Tick­ets cost €20 and are on sale from Michael Mor­daunt 086 3871500, Paul Burke 086 0727146, Tommy Nolan 086 1612037 and Tony Fen­nell 086 2569787, com­mit­tee mem­bers and the Arklow Bay Ho­tel. Doors open at 8 p.m. sharp.
