Jack The Joker
|No. Drawn - 38|
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s where the jackpot is €2,200 as on Sunday night last Joe Kelly was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 38, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Jimmy Lennihan and Lalu O’Connor 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 Crottys Corner Bar.
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.
On Saturday night last there was a fantastic turnout to our medal presentation in Scoil Mhuire, Abbeyside. On the night we presented medals to our victorious Minor, Under 21 and Junior teams and we thank Patrick Hurney and Conor Prunty for presenting the medals on the night. After the medal presentation Club Chairman Bernard Shields made a presentation to both Patrick and Conor to mark their selection as Footballer of the Year and Underage Footballer of the Year respectively for 2015. We would like to thank Scoil Mhuire for the use of their facilities, Pat O’Brien for the fabulous food he provided and the ladies who helped with serving the food to all those present.
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.
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 The Park Hotel with a jackpot of €800.
On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Cyril Healy, Ballycoe who passed away recently.
