The Poor Farmers Auction
A night of fun and craic where everyone becomes a “poor farmer” for the night!
Ardara Poor Farmers Association – Charity Auction 2018
We are holding our 13th Annual Poor Farmers Association (P.F.A.) Charity Auction in Teague’s Bar, Ardara, Co. Donegal on the 29th December 2018 @ 9pm.
To date the P.F.A has raised an astonishing €286,749 for charities.
The P.F.A. auction will be a great night’s crack as usual. Furniture and fixtures are removed from the bar and replaced with bales of straw to sit on, with saw-dust covering the floors.
The stage is also transformed into a bidding table for the auctioneer taking charge of proceedings over the usual dance floor which also morphs, on the night, into “the mart ring” with livestock auctioned in bar… but seeing is believing so be sure to make your way to Teague’s Bar on the 29th December 2018!
In the past, lots have included sheep, heifers, bags of turf, chickens, gates, bags of nuts and bales of silage to name but a few.
“We’ve lots flying in as we speak. And we’re expecting a wide and varied range of items to be in place by the time the night comes around. If you’ve never been to the event, then you should make the effort this year as it’s truly a unique night that will live long in your memory – it’s crazy – but it’s all for such a great cause!”
The Poor Farmers Association (P.F.A.) would like to thank everyone involved in the last 13 Auctions which raised a total of €286,749. THANK YOU ALL.
