Guests and ciommittee members at last week's launch of The Chase
On Friday, April 3 Kinlough Community Development Company brings the hugely popular ‘The Chaser’ to The Great Northern Hotel in Bundoran.
This show has attracted large audiences all over Ireland and is fast becoming the most popular source of fund-raising for groups, schools and clubs.
Contestants are drawn from the audience and answer 7 questions with four possible answers valued at €100, €200, €300, €400, €600, €800, €1,000.
The €200 and €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. They start on step five and The Chaser starts on step seven. The Chaser will offer 150% of the amount won to take a step nearer or 30% of amount won to take a step nearer home.

This incredibly successful show, which is provided by Pallas Marketing Ltd., is being run by Kinlough Community Development Co. to assist in fundraising for the significant ongoing development works at Kinlough Community Centre.
These works include a new re-drained, re-aligned pitch with new fencing, goals, ball-stops and dugouts, a new extension to the community centre with two new meeting rooms including an economic hub with hotdesks, a new fully equipped kitchen and new tarmacked car park.
The launch night for the show was held in the Community Centre on Wednesday last with a large attendance including Tom Shanahan from Pallas Marketing.
