OLYMPIC SUPPORT FUND
The people of Oulart are immensely proud of the exploits of Irish and European Welterweight Boxing Champion, Adam Nolan who will represent Ireland at the London Olympics, shortly. On Saturday, 30th June we will have an opportunity to demonstrate, in a practical and meaningful way, our support and appreciation, of this dedicated and ambitious young sportsman.
A Variety Night of "Ceol & Craic" will be held in the Paul Roche's "Oulart Hill Bar" and there will be entertainment, refreshments and a raffle. There will also be an Auction for an autographed Singlet & Boxing Gloves belonging to the man of the moment, Adam. Kiera Byrne, from Gorey, who reached the semi-finals of "The Voice of Ireland" will head the cast of entertainers, on a night not to be missed. Lar Kenny will provide the music and accompaniment and some local entertainers will add to the gaiety of the occasion.
Should his busy schedule allow it, Adam himself will attend. So let's all come together on Saturday 30th June to salute our parish Olympian and give Adam Nolan a great Oulart send-off!
There will be no admission charge for the Variety Night on 30th June but a donation box will be available should anyone like to add to the fund.
Also, donations from individuals, businesses or organisations will be gratefully accepted, (and a receipt given) by any member of the organising committee, up to the time of Adam's departure to London. Contact Fr. John Jordan, Breda Jacob (086-1686978), Jimmy Bolger, Catherine Murphy or Marie Prendergast.
To facilitate the people unable to attend the Variety Night on Saturday 30th June and as a further gesture of solidarity, the "Adam Nolan Olympic Support Fund" Committee will hold a Coffee/ Tea Morning in Marty's Bar, Oulart on Thursday 5th July from 11 am until 1 pm.
Admission will be only €2. There will be a raffle for some valuable donated prizes. Anyone who would like to donate cakes/confectionery for the Coffee Morning should contact one of the committee members listed above. Bring your family and friends and drink a cuppa while listening to great music.

Sympathy too is extended to his sisters Michelle and Yvonne, his partner Laura, and to the extended O'Connor and Fenlon families and to the many relatives and dear friends who will mourn the passing of this wonderful young man.
