Monster Auction in aid of Lecarrow Benevolent Fund

The annual Monster Auction in aid of the Lecarrow Benevolent Fund will take place outside Coffey’s Pub, Lecarrow from 8.30 pm on this Sunday, June 4th.

There will be live music in a marquee prior to the auction (from 7 pm) and a raffle featuring ten great prizes will also take place on the night.

Lots up for auction include an Aberdeen Angus calf, ewe lambs, live pig on foot, swimming pool and gym membership, a fuel voucher, drinks vouchers, dinner for two and much, much more.

Tickets for the raffle, priced at €5, are available on, from committee members and from Coffey’s Pub.

Chairperson of the Lecarrow Benevolent Fund committee, Billy Kelly, expressed his thanks to sponsors and supporters this week.

“We are looking forward to our Monster Auction and raffle on Sunday and would just like to say a big thank you to Sarah Jane and everyone at Coffey’s for hosting us again this year. Thanks also to all our sponsors, ticket sellers and supporters for the backing they have given us over the years,” he said.

The Lecarrow Benevolent Fund was devised when a small group of community-minded people came together in 2001 to assist groups and individuals in difficulty. Since then, the Fund has raised and distributed over €500,000 for worthy causes.

While a significant portion of the funds raised are distributed throughout the parish, Lecarrow Benevolent Fund has also reached out to a wider area, including Roscommon, Castlerea, Monksland, Dysart, Brideswell, Curraghboy, and as far away as Dublin.

The Fund has also paved the way for the purchase of life-saving equipment, including the installation and maintenance costs of defibrillators throughout the area. The Fund was established to assist those who may find themselves in a difficult financial position through no fault of their own or in other cases where people are facing significant costs in relation to medical treatment.

All support for this year’s Monster Auction at Coffey’s Pub in Lecarrow would be gratefully appreciated.
