Sunday 6th May brings Family Fortunes to Manorhamilton. The questions have been asked, the survey completed and the answers collated, all in readiness for Manorhamilton’s first every Community Family Fortunes.

Six local teams will be competing for the buzzers and attempting to identify the top answers. The Soccer club and Glencar-Mancor GAA should have no bother. Both teams are well used to competition. It might be another story for the teachers from St Clare’s who are more used to asking the questions than answering them. And, no doubt, MC Frank Forde will have his work cut out for him trying to control the team from Ocean FM.

Sales of the ‘Family Fortunes’ board game have rocketed in Manorhamilton and it has been said that the team in Killasnett Co-Op have been running their own survey while selling agricultural supplies. On the other hand the team at The Bea-Park Centre are too busy shining the brasses in the Centre to be practising. They are expecting a full-house for another sell-out show hosted by the Emerald Revellers.

Clare McMorrow, Chairperson of the Emerald Revellers explained “we were approached by staff at the Bee-Park Centre and asked if we would consider putting on a performance. We had great fun in the past doing ‘Jigs & Reels’ and ‘Mr & Mrs’ so we thought we would try ‘Family Fortunes this time. As always these performances only work if you get community support and we have got great support from six teams.”

“Family Fortunes is technically a more difficult show to stage” explained PRO, Joe McGorrin. “We have put a lot of work into keeping our performance as close as possible to the original version with a wee twist and when you add Frank Forde to the mix you can be sure of a great night’s craic. And of course, on top of all that, it will support local charities with teams nominating a charity of their choice”.

The show will be staged in the Bee Park Centre on Sunday 6th May. Doors open 8pm. Admission €10.00. For tickets contact Clare on 087 2722 0068.
