Bride Rovers GAA Club Notes.
The Juvenile and Ladies Clubs  victory Social in the Corrin Event Centre  is on Saturday night next  February the 8th. 2013 was a marvellous year for Bride Rovers with the Minors, u 13s and Ladies football and camogie teams winning East Cork and County Titles. Corrin Event Centre is a lovely venue and has hosted numerous entertainment events in recent years. The ticket prices for the Social are adults €20, Minors €15 and children €10. As numbers are limited and a demand is expected to be great the advice is to get your tickets as quickly as possible. The tickets are available from Pat Murphy, Triona O Sullivan and Mossie O Sullivan

Last  week’s draw took place in Barry’s Bar on Tuesday January the 28th  for a jackpot of €11,600. The four numbers drawn were 4/13/14 and 25 and there was no jackpot winner.

The winners of the five €30 ''Lucky Dips’ were;
. Liam Forde, Rathcormac
. Mick O’Donovan, Rathcormac
. Claire Coleman, Killeagh
. Maureen Manley, Rathcormac
. Catriona Barry c/o Laya Healthcare.

This  week’s draw took  place in Benskins  Bar for a jackpot of €11,800.

Tickets for the weekly Lotto Draw are priced at just 2 each and can be purchased from Club members. They are also available in local business outlets  and online at Support for the weekly Lotto is vital and greatly appreciated as the costs involved in running a GAA Club are increasing all the time. As well as the day to day costs we are planning more major Development work in Pairc na Bride in 2014 so finance is always needed.
