Nollaig na Mban Fundraiser for Galway Simon

The Arches Hotel Claregalway hosted a hugely successful Nollaig na mBan Fundraiser in aid of Galway Simon Community of January 6th last. The evening celebrated the old West of Ireland custom of Nollaig na mBan (Women’s Christmas), when traditionally the women took a well deserved rest and the men did all the household chores (as if!!). There was huge turnout of local ladies on the night and they were wined and dined with cocktails, bubbly and some fabulous finger food. A raffle on the night raised over €800 for Galway Simon Community and The Arches Hotel would like to thank the following for their donation of Spot Prizes:

  • Hayfield Manor Hotel, Cork
  • The Sanctuary Beauty Salon, Claregalway
  • McDonagh’s Hardware, Galway
  • Inspirations Gift Shop, Claregalway,
  • Raftery’s Centra, Claregalway
  • O’Connell’ Pharmacy, Currandulla

Huge thanks also to all of the fabulous ladies who attended the event as well as DJ Jason Comer who kept them bopping on the dance floor late into the night. The Arches plans to run a number of similar events throughout the year so keep an eye on www.thearcheshotel.ie and www.facebook.com/ArchesHotel/ for all the details.
