Juvenile social on Friday night

It’s all systems go for St Catherines GAA and Camogie Club’s annual juvenile social. Going ahead at the Corrin Event Centre, on the forthcoming Friday night, January 15th. Starting at 7.30pm. New numbers were to be submitted to the venue by midweek. But if there’s a late change of mind please check with either Eleanor Galvin or Fiona Sheehan re update. Ticket prices are €18 for adults and €12 for juveniles.

So let’s hope for a happy and enjoyable function and it will be the occasion it deserves to be.


First lotto draw of the new year was held at The Plough Bar, Curraglass, on Monday night, January 4th last. Numbers drawn were 1, 5, 6 and 12 and the jackpot of €6,200 wasn’t won. While the consolation winners on the night were; Kevin Cotter c/o Pat Hartigan, Conna; John Temple, Garrycaheragh, Ballynoe; Clare Kearney, Shanakill, Curraglass; Seamus Kearney, Ballybride, Conna and Conor Kearney, Ballybride, Conna. More results will feature next week, while they are updated regularly on the website.


Condolences to Paddy Aherne and family, Ballynoe on the recent death of his wife Mary’s mother in Banteer. Ar dheis Dé go raibh hanam dhilis.

Cork teams

Barroom critics are out in force. Oh conditions are awful. Teams are weak. There’s nobody going. Right on all three. But surely the McGrath Cup and Munster hurling league provide ideal opportunities for the respective selectorial groups to have a look again at the fringe or even new players. It’s a necessary process in trying to form a settled panel with the national leagues only three or four weeks away. Commonsense surely.

Cork’s game in the football was called off over the weekend. So they’re now playing catch up, while the hurlers have two matches in five days. It’s only starting boy!
