Jack The Joker
|No. Drawn - 15|
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €5,600 as on Sunday night last Kevin Barry was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 15, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Colm O’Hare and Shane Briggs 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, Abbeyside Post Office and Crotty’s Corner Bar.
U2 Visit The Burgery
On Friday morning last whilst all of the national media attention was focused on Croke Park and that night’s concert by Bruce Springsteen, we had our very own international music superstars U2 in our club grounds. The band were paying a flying visit to the area to attend an anniversary mass and landed their helicopter in our pitch, where they were greeted by our club chairman and secretary, and other club members. Unfortunately they were unable to persuade the band to agree to play a fundraising concert in the field, but they did make them feel most welcome in our club grounds.
We played our third match of the Western Championship on Friday night when we played Ballyduff Upper in Fraher Field. On the night the team played some very good football to run out deserving winners and boost our hopes of qualifying for the knock out stages of the championship.
TEAM: R. RYAN, D. HENLEY, M. LAVAN, G. BREEN, N. DEE, J. ELSTED, E. ENRIGHT, L. HURNEY, J. BERESFORD, T. MURRAY, M. GORMAN, A. O’CONNOR, S. CROTTY, J. O’BRIEN, E. KIELY.
SUBS: D. POWER, D. SWEENEY, J. MOORE, C. O’DWYER, J. GORMAN.
We play De La Salle this Saturday night at 7:30 pm in the Sargent Cup in Gracedieu. On Thursday June 9th we play Cappoquin in our second game of the County Championship in Fraher Field at 7pm.
On Sunday last we had a number of players involved with the Waterford Junior and Senior Football teams in Munster Championship action in Fraher Field. John Hurney and Kevin Dwane were on the Junior panel that lost to Tipperary in extra time, while Stephen Enright, Patrick Hurney, Michael O’Halloran, Brian Looby, James O’Mahony and Eoin Bergin were with the Senior panel who also lost to Tipperary.
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.
Our club bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall with a jackpot of €1650.
