businesses that assisted

The event was set up on very short notice. It was initially advertised on August 29th which was 5 weeks before the launch date. See this initial post

Many of the businesses were very kind to allow us to host the event in their premises. (Annascaul Cafe is one of the committee members and we were able to facilitate event at the cafe. Initially we thought we could hold the event outside. However, there was too much uncertainty with the weather. The businesses that contributed were : The Annascaul Sports Hall, Annascaul Community hall, The Leprechaun, Hannifin’s bar, The South Pole, Patcheens, Bainin, Scoil Bhreac Chluain, West Kerry Live The Old Anchor, Foleys of Inch, Sammy’s of Inch and West Kerry Brewery.

The costs and revenues

We sold 65 tickets on the day. This was a little short of what we needed. GoFundme money from friends along with workshop ticket sales assisted us. Additionally, on the day fundraising also financed this event . The event cost 1319 Euro to host. 65 tickets was a great start and it means that events are very achievable. Consequently, we can see what happens when everyone works together.

I personally wish to thank all those who contributed to the GoFundMe page. It is amazing the encouragement those 5 Euros ( and often more ) contributions all give. The energy when friends work together shows that we all velieve in this event They believe in community. We believe in art, its magic, and its social contribution. There is now the confidence to hold this event annually. Finally, I wish to personally thank everyone so, so much for those amounts that you contributed.

Next Year

We look forward to doing it all again next year. To everyone that helped and not necessarily mentioned here, – be proud of your achievement and never under estimate of what it all means
