Cloyne GAA Notes

There was no winner of last week’s lotto draw for a jackpot of €7,700, no one matched all 5 numbers to win the Seat Mii Car but 4 people matched 3 numbers and each receives €40.

Alison Cusack Lisanly.
Patricia Rochford c/o Mick O Halloran.
Gerard Murphy c/o Anthony Murphy.
Christy Meade c/o Harty’s Bar.

Next week’s draw for a €8000 jackpot will be held in Auntie Biddies Bar with tickets available from all local businesses.

Work is progressing nicely on our new development with the ball alleys and the external part of the building now complete. Work on the fitting out of the interior is progressing well and last week also saw work commence on the new playground. The fence for the playground has been put in place and work on the groundwork for same can now commence.

Fundraising for the development is ongoing and our latest venture was “A Night at the Dogs” incorporating a Buster Draw which took place in Youghal track on Friday last 1st November. Congratulations to Una O’Shea (Nee Considine) who won the €500 first prize.
Our thanks to everyone who turned out on the night to lend their support, to all those that bought tickets and to the management of Youghal track for their hospitality on the night.
The next big fundraising event is a White Collar boxing match against near neighbours Aghada towards the end of January. This is a novel event well worth looking forward to with full details to come in the following weeks.

Congratulations to Midleton on becoming Cork County Senior hurling champions for 2013.
22 years is a long gap for a club of Midleton’s size and stature since their last victory but with the age profile and talent of the team I’m sure they won’t be waiting another 22 years for the next title.
Commiserations to both Killeagh and Castlemartyr who fell at the semi-final stage of the County Junior football and hurling championships respectively.

Congratulations to Conor Cusack for his bravery and inspirational blog that has taken the nation by storm this past week. We in the GAA club are proud of the way he has conducted himself and hopefully his story will be of help to many that might find themselves in a similar situation.
Congratulations also to player Conor O’Lomasney and his wife Therese on the birth of their daughter Pearl recently.
