The club held a monster auction in Keary's lounge Caltra during November as part of the fundraising drive for the new development. A huge crowd attended and bid for over 350 lots on the day. Every lot put up for auction was cleared on the day and this is in no small part thanks to MC extraordinaire Padraig Naughton and his persuasive art of doing business.

A huge variety of items were sold ranging from farm equipment to sporting goods. A huge sum was raised for the club thanks to an extraordinary effort of all involved. Many thanks to Padraig for agreeing to give us his services for the day. Also to all of the many people throughout the parish and further afield who donated items for the auction. This was HUGELY appreciated by the club. All of the club members who helped in the organisation of the event and its smooth running deserve massive credit also as does Catherine for allowing us the use of her premises for the day.
