Jack The Joker
|No. Drawn - 27|
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s where the jackpot is €2,400 as on Sunday night last Frankie Wright was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 27, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Shay Young and Kevin and Mark 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.
Under 21 Football
This Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm we take on The Nire in the first round of the Western Championship in The Gold Coast.
Once again this year the GAA are holding a National Draw with tickets costing €10 each. There are some fantastic prizes on offer. Tickets are now available from Committee members and team managers.
We would like to remind intending members and especially players that membership fees are now due and can be paid to Kevin Tobin or any team manager. We would ask players to make a special effort to pay their membership before returning to training to ensure they are covered by insurance.
Love was certainly in the air last week in Abbeyside as the two Marks popped the big question to their respective girlfriends. On behalf of all in the club we send our congratulations to Mark Ferncombe and Cassandra Dee and also to Mark Gorman and Keeva Fennelly on their engagements last weekend and hope that both lads won’t miss too much training preparing for the big day.
Booking of Pitches
As teams start back training over the next few weeks we remind all team managers that they must book the pitches/astro turf with Michael O’Donovan prior to training and also managers are asked to remember that the main pitch remains closed until further notice.
Our club bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall with a jackpot of €850.
