Jack The Joker
|No. Drawn - 32|
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €7,800 as on Sunday night John Cosgrave was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 32, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Paula Dunford and Nuala Foley 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 Crottys Corner Bar.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of the Pat Veale, Strandside who passed away recently. Pat was principal of Scoil Mhuire for many years and his son Pat was a very talented player for the club. We would also like to extend our sympathy to the family and friends of the late Fr. Richard Doherty who passed away last week. Fr. Doherty was Parish Priest of Abbeyside for many years and was involved in many committees and organisations in the parish.
