Jack The Joker

Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €7,400 as on Sunday night Richie Hayes was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 17, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathies to the O’Riordan family, Murphy Place on the death of Michael “Lylie”O’Riordan. Lylie’s sons played for the club for many years helping to win numerous county titles and his grandsons continue to play for the club today maintaining the proud family tradition.
