Hugely popular show 'The Chaser' coming to Bundoran to raise funds for new Kinlough Community Centre

The very active local committee who are putting a huge effort into the event

It's gripping the nation. It's one of the most exciting shows around and it's coming to Donegal to help fundraise for a new community centre in Kinlough. And you could win a tidy little sum of cash! What more do you want?

For on Friday April 3rd 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 4 possible answers valued at €100, €200, €300, €400, €600, €800, €1,000.

The €200 and €400 are milestones – contestant 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 5 and The Chaser starts on step 7. The Chaser will offer 150% of 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 2 new meeting rooms including a 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 Wed March 4th with a large attendance including Tom Shanahan from Pallas Marketing (show providers).

We spoke to Pat Gallagher, Chairman of the Fundraising Committee about the show at the launch night who advised as follows: “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 Friday April 3rd in The Great Northern Hotel Bundoran as the show is excellent, its really hi-tech and offers a superb night’s entertainment for everyone.
