SUNDAY MIXED SCRAMBLE

Between rugby, hurling and football this event fell by the wayside last Sunday. Bad planning on our part!   Apologies to those who entered but due to small numbers it just wasn’t viable. Thanks for your support and hopefully numbers will improve going forward.  Next scramble will take place on Sun, Mar 8. Shotgun start at 4 pm.


LOTTO

The continuing bad weather plus the sports events (rugby, hurling and soccer) caused a small group to watch the Lotto draw on Sunday 23rd Feb.

The numbers drawn were 8, 11, 26 and 27. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €8,000 next week. There was one winner of the Match 3s – Margaret O’Shea who wins €100. Congratulations to Margaret.

The draw next week will take place on next Sunday afternoon about 4:00pm – all are welcome.
