Jack The Joker
|No. Drawn - 42|
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €6,800 as on Sunday night last Jason O’Donovan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 42 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Paul Breen and Stephen Enright 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.
On Friday night last we took on Stradbally in the County Final in Fraher Field where unfortunately we suffered a two point defeat. Whilst naturally all involved with the team were heartbroken at the full time whistle the players and management team can be assured that all in the club are very proud not alone of the performance given by the team on the night but of their performances throughout the year. The majority of the team line out in both codes for the club and continue to give wonderful commitment to the club, which we are most grateful for. Hopefully we will see them all back in action in 2016 challenging for honours yet again.

Our Junior Footballers lifted the spirits of the Club on Saturday afternoon last when they defeated a gallant Bonmahon side to claim the County Title in Stradbally. Both teams are to be commended for serving up such a good game of football in such difficult underfoot conditions, a great credit must go to our players for the fine displays of football they gave all year. This was our first year back in this Championship after taking a break from it for a number of years and the management team of Pat O’Brien and Pat Keane did fantastic work all year keeping the team going. After the game Conor O’Dwyer as team captain accepted the cup from Sean Michael O’Regan.
