Four winners share €10,600 lotto jackpot

Although it has happened previously, it is rare and unusual for multiple winners to claim the weekly lotto prize simultaneously. Yet four winners emerged to share the €10,600 lotto jackpot when the draw was held at The Fisherman’s Rest, Conna on Monday night, August 31st last. Magic combination of numbers being 5, 11, 17 and 23. Congratulations to all.

Most recent draw was held at The Winner’s Enclosure, Conna on Monday night last, September 7th. Numbers drawn were 8, 12, 16 and 19 and there was no winner of the now basic €3,000 jackpot. While the consolation winners were: Jill H, c/o The Big Tree, Aghern; John Anthony, Conna; Carmel O’Keeffe, Fermoy; Edward and Bernie, c/o Mc’s Bar, Ballynoe and Susan McCarthy, Caher, Tallow.

This week’s Rebel Óg East Review

Minor B football league – section two – round four

Ballygarvan 4-10 St Catherines 2-4

St Catherines remained in contention to half-time when this round four minor B football league match was played in Ballygarvan on Wednesday evening, September 2nd last. John Walsh initiated the move. Found Philip Keane whose foot perfect pass found Niall O’Regan closing in on goal, before billowing the net from close range for a classic score on twenty-one minutes and just three points adrift at 1-5 to 1-2 at the interval.

But when substitute Ryan Coleman goaled on thirty-seven minutes the home based team eased themselves into a substantial lead. Enhanced by a hattrick of goals by their best forward, Richard Cassidy.

Scorers: N O’Regan and C Hickey (1-0 each), J Walsh (0-2 frees), P Keane and T O’Donnell (free) (0-1 each).

St Catherines team: E Davis, E Wallace, B Davis, B O’Brien, R English, K Neville, Rd Galvin, R Galvin, T O’Donnell, P Keane, S O’Donnell, L Beecher, C Hickey, J Walsh, N O’Regan. Subs: K English for S O’Donnell (37’), C Galvin for L Beecher (44’).

Referee: Ian Thomas (Carrigaline).

U16 B football league – section two – round five

Bride Rovers 5-9

St Catherines 1-7

Two goals in the opening exchanges stood Bride Rovers in good stead when this round five U16 B football league game originally in the schedule pre exam time, was eventually played in Rathcormac on Monday evening, August 31st last. Catherines recovered after that but were preoccupied with going for goals. Therefore a number of chances weren’t availed of. Trailing 2-3 to 0-4 at the interval. Strong approach play involving Brendan McKee and Eoin Davis saw Robert English finish off the goal required. Trimming the deficit to just three points on a scoreline of 2-5 to 1-5 to forty-three minutes. But it was joy shortlived with Conor Barry and Griffin O’Keeney goals again extending the margin and effectively collecting the league points on offer.

Scorers: R English (1-0), Rd Galvin (0-3), N O’Regan and E Davis (frees) (0-2 each).

Team: O O’Neill, G England, C Galvin, P Keane, B McKee, E Wallace, S Kelleher, B O’Brien, A Long, R English, Rd Galvin, A O’Brien, E Davis, K English, N O’Regan.
