CAPPAMORE Bingo returns later week for the first time since Covid hit more than 18 months ago.

The long awaited day is Thursday, September 30 at 8.30pm. It will be a fundraising night for Milford.

Tommie Ryan, of the bingo committee, said they have had many enquiries, in recent months, about when they would resume. 

“Patrons will have to produce a vaccination cert and 60% capacity has to be observed. Cappamore Bingo is renowned for great prize money and is the main funding for the upkeep of the community centre. Many assemble from Tipperary, Clare, Cork and Limerick for a great social night,” said Tommie. 

Pat Fogarty, chairman of Cappamore Development Association, said great credit is due to every member of the bingo committee for getting it back on track.

Donations for Milford can be given to any member of the bingo committee from anyone unable to attend on Thursday.
