Club Notes - 11th January

Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €5,000 as on Sunday night Margret Duggan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 3 which wasn’t the Joker buts she did win €50. Sebastian Byrne and Lauren Cliffe won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar, Abbeyside Post Office and Crotty’s Corner Bar.

Membership
As the playing season draws ever nearer we would ask all members both playing and ordinary to please get your membership paid as soon as possible. It can be paid to Membership Officer Pat Keane or any Committee Member. The onus is on intending members to hand their membership fee over and players should be aware that they are not eligible to play for the club if they don’t pay their membership.

Field Bookings
We ask that all team managers book their times for training / matches with Michael O’Donovan in advance of returning to training. Managers must notify Michael in advance if they wish to change from their allocated time.

National Draw
Tickets are currently for sale from all Committee members for the GAA National Draw. There are some fantastic prizes on offer such as a car and holidays, but the great thing about the draw is that the club retains all of the €10 which the ticket costs. Therefore you are doing your bit to support the club whilst also having a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

Club Bingo
This week our club bingo session continues in the Park Hotel at 8pm with a jackpot of €1350.

Sympathy
On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Kevin Casey, Dunmore East who passed away last week. During his ten years working with WLR FM Kevin endeared himself to all sports fans across the county with his excellent sports programmes and his wonderful personality. It’s certainly fair to say that Kevin was one of life’s gentlemen and we send our sympathies to his wife Marguerite, their three young sons and all Kevin’s family.

Jack The Joker

Kurt Shrubb and Lauren Cliffe won €25 each.

Under 21 Hurling
Our under 21 hurlers brought the curtain down on our 2016 playing season on Sunday last when they took on De La Salle in the County Final in Fraher Field. Despite going into the game as underdogs the lads played with great spirit in the first half and led by two points with half time approaching, only for De La Salle to hit a late goal to give them the lead at the interval. Unfortunately it was a lead they weren’t to surrender for the remainder of the match as they ran out deserving winners at the fulltime whistle. Great credit must go to our team though not alone for the manner in which they kept fighting right to the end of the game but also the way in which they hurled throughout the Championship. They have made fantastic progress this year and with such a young team hopefully it won’t be too long before the Tony Mansfield Cup comes back to Abbeyside. We thank the players and the management team of Donncha, the two Michaels and Donal for all the commitment they gave to the team during the year.
TEAM: L. POWER, C. McCARTHY, B. LOOBY, M. COLEMAN, P. COLLINS, C. PRUNTY, M. TWOMEY, J. ELSTED, D. McGRATH, N. MONTGOMERY, J. BERESFORD, S. CLIFFE, E. KIELY, S. DALY, T. LOOBY.
SUBS: P. COLLINS, K. DWANE, S. WHELAN BARRETT, D. LOOBY.

Keyrings
There are still a limited number of club keyrings available to purchase costing €5. These would make an ideal stocking filler for any club supporter and they can be purchased from Jack O’Hare.

Christmas Raffle
Tickets are currently on sale from any committee member for our Annual Christmas Raffle, which takes place in Minnies Bar this Thursday night at 9pm. We appeal to all our supporters to please support this raffle as best you can to help us raise the funds required to run our club.

Club Bingo
This week our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall at 8pm with a jackpot of €1250.

Seasons Greetings
On behalf of all in the club we would like to wish all our members and supporters a Happy and Peaceful Christmas. We especially think of those who are traveling home to our Parish to spend Christmas with family and we hope they enjoy the holidays in Abbeyside. We would also like to thank the editor and staff of the Dungarvan Leader and Observer for all their help and support throughout 2016. Nollaig Shona agus athbhliain faoi shéan ‘s faoi shonas daoibh go léir.

Sympathy
On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Emma Flynn, Murphy Place who passed away over the weekend. Like all the Flynn family Emma was a life long supporter and worker for our club. A talented camoige player in her day Emma gave a lifetime of service to our club, especially when it came to fundraising. Emma was a constant presence at our weekly Bingo sessions for over 30 years and was never found wanting when it came to carry out any role asked of her in the club. Members of the Flynn family continue that tradition in our club today and once again we send our sympathies to her family but especially to Robert, Shelly, Sheron and Collette and to her brother Peter.
