A look back at Fantasy Cheltenham

Skryne GFC were delighted with the fantastic response to the recent Fantasy Cheltenham fundraiser. In a time where every penny counts, it was heartening to see such a positive response from our supporters. A total of 420 tickets were purchased for the event with a profit of €5,000 raised for the club which will help with the ongoing development and maintenance of our facilities.

Skryne GFC would like to thank all who bought tickets and supported the event. We would also like to express our appreciation to Alan and the staff in Swans for their help with registration for this event and to our ticket sellers who helped to ensure that the ticket sales were high despite the challenging circumstances due to Covid 19.

We congratulate our Skryne GFC prizewinners, Niamh O’Sullivan who took the Skryne GFC overall prize and our daily winners Mary Jackson, Martin Mulvany, Mike Noonan and Stan Phillips. Well done to all!

Cheltenham certainly proved to be an exciting week of racing and it was made even more enjoyable when local trainer Gavin Cromwell saw 2 of his horses, Flooring Porter and Vanillier romp home to victory.

A heroic performance from Skryne man Keith Donoghue who rode veteran Tiger Roll to a 13 length victory was another sweet moment for all to savour. Well done to Gavin and Keith who made us forget about lockdown for a short while last week.
