THE Castle Vintage Club presented €3,600 to the Community Workshop in Enniscorthy recently.

The big cheque, presented at Jacksie's Bar, in Taghmon, was the proceeds of a recent tractor workshop day at Rourke's Cross run by the Castlebridge-based vintage club, one of the most active in the county when it comes to fund raising.

The same night, Jacksie's landlord John Murphy held a fundraising spud tasting competition on behalf of AWARE.

The event was hosted by Paraic Breathnach, who plays Jacksie Walsh, in Kilnascully, who found Sharon Boland-Nash's spuds to be the best. She won the first prize of a knapsack sprayer.

Second was John Whitney, who won a sprong, and third was Niamh Fenlon, who a galvanised bucket.

One entry was disqualified, a very watery potato entered by Paul Kehoe (Not the TD).

John Murphy said the competition raised €700 for AWARE.
