The Bantry Bay Lions Club attended the Bantry Show on September 4 with a paint ball shooting game which proved to be very popular, attracting all age groups. Sharpshooters Matt Conner, Claire Rander and Lewis O’Sullivan scored a perfect 6 while Tadgh Crowley, Declan O’Sullivan, Toby Campbell and a young lad called Dylan scored 5. What an amazing display of accuracy by these sharpshooters. Congratulations everyone. A total of €325 was raised on the day and will contribute to the Lions Charity fund for local distribution. Pictured receiving one of the gold medals is Matt Conner with his family and some Lions members. The Lions would like to thank all those who participated.
