Hurry to the Curry for Arklow RNLI

This wonderful annual fundraiser (Dan's Lifeboat Special) in aid of Arklow RNLI has gone from strength to strength and continues to be one of the most enjoyable and well supported nights out in the events calendar.

Why not get your ticket nice and early and then get there nice and early on Friday, 27 January.

The culinary masterpieces prepared by Anne and her team of volunteers, ranging from hot curry dishes, a wonderful array of fresh sea food – prawns, lobster, crab, monkfish, salmon – cold meat platters, vegetarian dishes and salads of all kinds. Advice is come to the bash good and hungry, it’s the best value meal you’ll have had since last years event and quite simply the best craic to be had on the east coast.

There are spot prizes galore and some lovely raffle and auction items. Music will be provided by the Joe Dolan Experience followed by a DJ till late. There might even be some special guests.

Arklow RNLI’s crew are pulling out all the stops to ensure a magical night is had by all.

Mark Corcoran, Arklow RNLI Volunteer Lifeboat Press Officer said: 'Without volunteers like our fundraising team and our lifeboat crew who still to this day, give of their own time, our lifeboat couldn’t function and continue to be rescue ready. We would love to see everybody at the Arklow Bay Hotel on Friday, 27 January.'

Tickets are €20 and are available from Arklow Bay Hotel, Arklow RNLI Fundraising committee members, or you can email [email protected]
