Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail is hosting the unique gameshow event ‘Beat the Banker’, in association with Lee Gooch Productions, in the Redcastle Hotel, Moville on Saturday 22nd February at 8pm.

The Gaelscoil is raising funds to help with the school’s relocation to the old St Joseph’s Boys’ school in Moville in 2014. The Irish medium primary school was set up over 12 years ago by local parents.

 Lee Gooch

Lee Gooch, the popular Highland Radio presenter, developed “Beat the Banker” to deliver an exhilarating game show experience and a great night’s entertainment.

‘Beat the Banker’ gives five people a chance to win up to €1,000 in a game that will test the nerves of the coolest contestant.

The format is simple – buy a ticket for €10 and on the night, tickets are drawn to determine who plays for up to €1,000 in cash.

The “Beat the Banker” experience comes with a professionally designed TV-style production set, Lee Gooch as host and ‘Patricia’ the comedian who ensures the audience enjoys a total entertainment package.

Complete with full screenplay and audio-visual effects, the atmosphere is guaranteed.

The only question is which contestant will be brave enough to ignore the banker and hold out for the jackpot?

Major Fundraising


“This is the first time since we founded the school that Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail has undertaken a major fundraising.” said Gráinne Nic Robhartaigh, school Principal. 

“The funds will be used to help refurbish the former Boys’ school in Moville. This will be a big benefit to the local area, not just the Gaelscoil”.
