 LADIES CHRISTMAS PARTY

A big thank you to Celia, Olga and Kate for organizing our Christmas Party on Sunday 8th. Unfortunately, the weather caused the cancellation of the scramble, but it didn’t deter us from having a lovely evening of chat, mulled wine, food and good cheer! It was a very enjoyable event, and a good time was had by all.

Thank you to our artistic director Maria Ryan and her band of merry women Angela, Kate, and Lady Captain Mary for putting up the Christmas Tree and decorations. Thank you to Maria again for her beautiful creations in the Clubhouse and Ladies Locker room, we are lucky to have such a talented lady in our ranks who brightens up our surroundings.

LOTTO

A wet dreary afternoon on Sunday 15th Dec caused the clubhouse to be unusually quiet as we did the Lotto draw. Again many thanks to the ever obliging Tom Daly for keeping the clubhouse open for us!

The numbers drawn were 4, 19, 20 and 24. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €7,000 next week.  There were three winners of the Match 3s  – Breda McCarthy, Michael Gildea and Liam Tracey – they each win €35. Congratulations to each of them.

The draw next week will take place on Sunday afternoon about 4:00pm. – all are welcome. In addition to the Lotto draw next Sunday there is a presentation of prizes event.    Come along and support the prize winners.
