Grattan Óg GAA will host The OsKaRs on Saturday, November 9 in The Longford Arms Hotel.

The OsKaRs is a fundraising event where people will experience the red carpets, glitz and glamour of the Oscars. Seven movies have been selected and local people will be re-enacting a well known scene from these movies.

They will then be premiered at the OsKaRs night where everyone can sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labour. The Grattan Óg committee are officially launching the event this Friday in Andy Byrnes at 9pm where all movies will be announced as well as the casting call for those movies. They would like to invite people to join them on the night for the big reveal.
