Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €5,000 as on Sunday night Margret Duggan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 3 which wasn’t the Joker buts she did win €50. Sebastian Byrne and Lauren Cliffe won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar, Abbeyside Post Office and Crotty’s Corner Bar.
As the playing season draws ever nearer we would ask all members both playing and ordinary to please get your membership paid as soon as possible. It can be paid to Membership Officer Pat Keane or any Committee Member. The onus is on intending members to hand their membership fee over and players should be aware that they are not eligible to play for the club if they don’t pay their membership.
We ask that all team managers book their times for training / matches with Michael O’Donovan in advance of returning to training. Managers must notify Michael in advance if they wish to change from their allocated time.
Tickets are currently for sale from all Committee members for the GAA National Draw. There are some fantastic prizes on offer such as a car and holidays, but the great thing about the draw is that the club retains all of the €10 which the ticket costs. Therefore you are doing your bit to support the club whilst also having a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
This week our club bingo session continues in the Park Hotel at 8pm with a jackpot of €1350.
On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Kevin Casey, Dunmore East who passed away last week. During his ten years working with WLR FM Kevin endeared himself to all sports fans across the county with his excellent sports programmes and his wonderful personality. It’s certainly fair to say that Kevin was one of life’s gentlemen and we send our sympathies to his wife Marguerite, their three young sons and all Kevin’s family.
