90th anniversary celebrations continue as Perks Entertainment Centre, Youghal set for first staff reunion


As part of our 90th year celebrations we at Perks Entertainment Centre Youghal are excited to announce our very first staff reunion on Thursday, May 30th from 8pm to 10pm and so would like to cordially invite ALL former employees and their families to a FREE night’s entertainment at our Youghal home.
