Lakeside Wheelers members were very much front and centre in the recent St. Lomans GAA club fundraiser “A Night at the Oskars”. Dual club member Robbie Kenny once again put the call out for budding actors and this time he was most fortunate to catch the attention of our Leisure Officer, Ulrika Maher. Not one to shy away from a challenge, Ulrika used all her powers of persuasion and before Robbie could say “Koal Kabin” she had several volunteers lined up to go to the casting sessions.
Following this process most of the Wheelers were assigned to participate in the Mullingar take on “Love Hate” with one or two others cast in the block buster, Michael Collins. On the night, the Love Hate crew were adjudged to have put in such a stellar performance that they won the “Oskar” for best film. Well done to all who represented the club in this fun event.
