Following the disappointment of Saturday when losing the opening round to Stacks in the senior club championship, attention now turns to our home game with former All Ireland champions Dr Crokes next weekend, the game going ahead on Sunday @ 14.30.
Dr Crokes showed on Sunday last that they are in rude health with an emphatic victory over An Ghaeltacht, 1-17 to 0-06; they are a seasoned battle hardened side who know who to win games and have an impressive record in all competitions at local and national level. They will be formidable opposition but our lads will not fear them and will be anxious to put some points on the board in this competition. David Moran’s absence from our defeat to Stacks on Saturday was a big blow, and our chances would be greatly improved if he was fit to start. It promises to be an intriguing battle with Dr Crokes favoured to prevail but with home advantage in front of a partisan crowd, anything could happen.
There was no winning ticket in last week’s draw where the winning numbers drawn were: 3, 25, 27 & 29 – nobody matched 3. The five entrants for the special December draw ( 4 X €25o) are as follows:
Seán Kissane, Derek Molloy, Mary Moran, Martina Griffin and Susan O’Callaghan.
Next weeks jackpot will be for a prize of €3,400 – tickets €2 each, 3 for €5 can be purchased from the kiosk in the club house.
