The Chaser

Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré was bustling with excitement on Tuesday last in anticipation of “The Chaser”. Students from first year, transition year and further education were treated to a mock demonstration of the Chaser by Pallas Marketing. “The Chaser” will take place in the Racket Hall Hotel on Thursday 10th October at 8pm. “The Chaser” is the school’s major fundraiser for this year with proceeds going to fund an ASD unit (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and Wellbeing initiatives. Tipp FM covered the event live as anticipation grew. Finally, the students were victorious and rewarded with no homework for their victory. School Principal Mr Michael O’Connor reminded those present of the need in the locality for an ASD unit in the school. “Every effort is being made to make this a reality”, said Mr O’ Connor.

The Chaser will run as seen on television. Contestants are drawn from the audience as per ticket stub and after 7 questions could possibly win €1500. Over €3000 is up for grabs on the night which is shaping up to be the event of the year. Tickets are selling fast. Remaining tickets are available from the school’s reception (0505-23939). Anyone who wishes to make a donation or sponsor the event can email Every cent counts.

Countdown to Thursday 10th October is truly on.
