Jack The Joker
|No. Drawn - 9|
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €5,800 as on Sunday night last Moira Mansfield was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 9 which wasn’t the Joker although she did win €50. Seamus O’Brien and Jim Egan won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar and Crotty's Corner Bar.
Our Club Bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €1,200.
On behalf of in the club we would like to congratulate Sean O’Hare and Deirdre Coleman on the arrival of their son Frankie last week.
On Tuesday night last we played Clashmore in our final game in the group stages of the Championship in Fraher Field. Thanks to a very good second half performance we emerged as winners meaning that we ended up finishing joint top in our group with Clashmore and The Nire. As scoring difference can’t be used to decide who wins the group a number of play-off games are now required between the three clubs.
TEAM: S. ERIGHT, C. McCARTHY, B. LOOBY, D. HENLEY, E. BERGIN, D. COLLINS, P. LYNCH, J. HURNEY, C. PRUNTY, E. COLLINS, M. FIVES, P. HURNEY, M. O’HALLORAN, M. MAHER, S. O’DONOVAN.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Paul Foley, who passed away last week. Paul was a fine player of both codes in his day and many of our players would have come against Paul during his distinguished playing career, whilst he handled a number of our matches since he took up refereeing in recent years. Again we send our sympathies to the Foley and O’Sullivan families and to all in Ballygunner GAA Club on Paul’s death.
We would also like to extend our sympathies to John Condon, An Rinn on the tragic death of his wife Jacinta Condon on Sunday last. John is of course a popular figure on the referring circuit in West Waterford and his grandson is a member of our Juvenile section. After the death of her nephew David during the summer our thoughts and prayers are with John and his family as well as the Houlihan family at this very difficult time for them.
