“THE ROAD TO SUCCESS” – 5 Weeks Left To Curraheen Park Fundraiser

There are now just five weeks to go to our fundraising night in Curraheen Park on Saturday night, February 28th 2015. This is going to be a huge undertaking for the club and its members and all proceeds from the race night have been ring-fenced for use in the completion of the road from our entrance gates up to our club premises. While great progress has been made over the years in improving and expanding our club facilities, sadly the road continues to be a blot on the overall development. As this race night is going to be a one-off everybody is being asked to shoulder a piece of the load and help out in any way with the task in hand. Tickets for the night are priced at a modest €10 for entry for one adult to a night of fun-filled greyhound racing. A steering committee for this fundraiser chaired by JJ Fennelly are currently issuing tickets and patrons can contact JJ on 0866483738, Kieran Scully on 0858037343, Sean Treacy on 0863923131, or Padraig McGrath on 0878575678 to purchase tickets or for further information about other activities on the night. Incidentally, those purchasing a ticket for the night will be automatically entered into a draw for some really valuable prizes like iPhones and All-Ireland Final Tickets so you can still be a winner if, for any reason, you cannot attend the racing.

Club Lotto Results;

Our latest lotto draw took place on Tuesday 20th Jan where there was no winner of the €2000 jackpot. Numbers drawn were 1, 2, 19 and 21. Lucky dip winners of €30 were A & B Rochford, Jack Flanagan, Alfie Foley and Eileen Kiely. The jackpot prize for our next draw will be €2200. It will take place as usual in our clubhouse on Tuesday Jan 27th. Thanks to everyone who supports our weekly lotto draw.
