Back again this year and due to popular demand is the Drive-in-Bingo which is due to be held in the yard of the Castleisland Co-Op Mart in the course of the summer and on a date to be decided.

Through Rain and Shine

Organised by the Castleisland Races Committee and first run in 2011, the event has been held through rain and shine while the players were either snug in their  cars or in the shelter of the mart’s outbuildings with others in gazebos – and all checking away mad.
