On Friday, April 1st, Kinlough Community Development Company brings “The Chaser” to the Great Northern Hotel, Bundoran at 8pm. This show has attracted large audiences all over Ireland and is fast becoming a very popular source of fund-raising.
Contestants are drawn from the audience and answer 7 questions with 4 possible answers valued at €100, €200, €300, €400, €600, €800, €1,000. (The 200/400 are milestones – contestants must choose after each question if they wish to bank the amount won or take another question). Contestants have two lifelines “Ask the audience” and “Take one” which will reduce the number of answers by one. Each lifeline can be used once.
Contestants then take the amount won to face The Chaser. The Chaser will offer 150% of the amount won to take a step nearer to the Chaser or 30% of the amount won to take a step nearer home. The Chasers selected to save the funds for the local committee are Kit Good, Antoinette Ryan and Shane Gallagher.
This incredibly successful show, which is provided by Pallas Marketing Ltd., is being run to assist in fundraising for Kinlough Community Centre. We spoke to Pat Gallagher, Chairman of the Development Committee about the event and he explained:
“We have been in contact with several other groups who ran, “The Chaser” around the country with great success. We are all looking forward to a great night on the 1st April as the show is really hi-tech and offers a superb night’s entertainment. The show is timed to start at 8pm and we would encourage people to come early to ensure a seat” said Pat. “We would also like to say a particular word of thanks to our main exhibitors ..

Pat also said “We are delighted to finally bring this show to the stage after a number of postponements due to Covid restrictions. We are hugely grateful for the support of our sponsors and we are especially thankful for the support of our community in particular over the past two years who have carried us through. The committee have worked exceptionally hard to deliver over half a million euros worth of development over the past few years including the new pitch, new car park, new business hub, new meeting rooms, new kitchen, revamped dressing rooms and shortly works will begin on new floodlighting on the training pitch. This night out will be great fun and also a great celebration of our community getting through the recent tough times.”
