Table Quiz this Friday in Aid of Cobh Rescue Horses

By Alan Sheehan


Cobh Rescue Horses will hold a table quiz fundraiser this Friday, 19 May.
The quiz night fundraiser will be held at the Ballynoe Inn, Cobh and will begin at 8.30pm. A table of four is priced at €20 with the proceeds going towards Cobh Rescue Horses.
The night will also feature a raffle, with hampers and prizes put together by the members of Cobh Rescue Horses.
“Jackie Dowell is organising it for us,” said Kelly Mellerick of Cobh Rescue Horses. “She will be the quizmaster on Friday and we as a group would like to thank her for running the quiz. She is very involved in the fundraising for us and she helps out with Animal Rescue Cobh as well. Jackie is fantastic for us. She also organises Grab a Gúnas, other table quizzes, car boot sales – she is a fantastic lady altogether.”
This year has gone well so far for the group.
“It’s been very good so far,” said Ms Mellerick. “We have seven horses rehomed now; five in Germany and two here in Ireland. So far we have had three foals born. One baby we are on night watch for at the moment so hopefully the mare will foal soon. And then we have another one due in June. Seven rehomed and five babies is very good for the year so far.
The Cobh-based group aims to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome equines and fundraises to achieve this and also for veterinarian work for the equines in their care, such as recent and expectant mothers and their foals.
