Raffle winners as follows: 1/ €30 John Kiely,  2/ €20 John Harty, 3/ €20 John Harty, 4/ €10 Donie Lane, 5/ €10 Eugene Quinn, 6/ €10 Gerry Moran. Just two weeks to go now in the league and it’s all to play for as to where the €280 prize money is going to go. Pauline Culhane and John Doolan are ahead on 82 games while behind them it’s very close between Jimmy McNamara on 73, Niall Doolan on 72 and Donie Lane, John O’Brien and Paddy Hanrahan on 71. The prize money of 1/ €150, 2/ €80, 3/ €50 will be presented to the successful gamblers at our final night on Thursday May 5th.
Our congratulations also goes to Richard Kennedy, Cragbeg on his recent election to the position of I.F.A. National Vice President. Best wishes also to Maura Byrnes who is recovering from a recent operation and we hope to see her back very soon. Thanks to all our patrons who have supported our card drive over the past nine months and we hope to see you all when we return in September after the summer holidays. See you on Thursday night April 28.
