GREY­STONES woman Noireen Clarke won the cov­eted top prize of a €1,000 Su­perValu shop­ping spree in the Grey­stones Cancer Sup­port draw.

Ev­ery­one at the draw was a win­ner though, as they were treated to an in­ti­mate per­for­mance by Ir­ish su­per­star Chris de Burgh. This was de Burgh’s first Ir­ish con­cert in a decade, and held in aid of Grey­stones Cancer Sup­port (GCS).

Au­thor Paul McNeive acted as MC for the evening, which was hosted by the­atre owner Ross Mc­Par­land and in­cluded a leg­endary per­for­mance by the ‘Lady in Red’ star.

Other win­ners in the draw in­clude TA Cromie, who won a Google Home do­nated by Eileen and Tom Ho­ran of Bright Pay. Olive Hur­ley from Grey­stones won a Sam­sung Galaxy tablet, do­nated by Mark Kin­sella fu­neral di­rec­tors.

‘Olive’s grand­chil­dren will teach her how to use this lat­est de­vice and she will be able to keep in con­tact with them,’ said a GCS spokes­woman.

Kelly Rogers from Grey­stones will have a very happy Christ­mas, hav­ing won a €200 voucher do­nated by butcher Des Doyle. Pierse Kier­nan was the win­ner of a stay and meal at the Pow­er­scourt Arms, while Alice Lee won a Grey­stones Golf Club four­ball.
