East Cork Junior Football Championship
Last Sunday afternoon we hosted the East Cork Junior A Football Championship, Carrigtwohill lost out to a very competent Glenbower Rovers side by 0-07 to 5-10, Glenbower now have recoded 4 titles in a row and we congratulate them in doing so. Many thanks to the club members who helped out on the day and also to the East Cork Board for awarding us this fixture.

County Board Draw
A very successful launch of the Cork GAA Clubs' Draw took place recently at Ballincollig GAA pavilion. The Draw has been an outstanding success, with the Clubs of the County making over a staggering €15 million euros since it commenced (at no risk to the Clubs as the Cork County Board funds the prizes and admin costs ). It also has enabled the Board to fund coaching and youth development in the County.
This year's prize fund is  a whopping €450,000, with cash, cars and holidays to be won in the monthly draws. To join, contact our Club Draw co coordinator Steve Sheehan, any Club officer or call to the GAA club.
