Limited enough competetive on field action this week , as Mike Woods' side limber up for Championship action at the end of June . A very entertaining challenge game vs Kilworth saw the visitors to Pairc Lios gCul take away a hard fought victory by a slender 2.12 to 1.12 scoreline . Like most Clubs we were limited to field without the exam tied Rob , John and Alan (and indeed best wishes to all our players and neighbours in the upcoming State Examinations). Noel Connery , Dave Barry and Maurice O'Connell impressed throughout , while Barry Ahern revelled in the more withdrawn role in the seconmd period .

No winner of the weekly lotto jackpot prize thses past two weeks yet again , and the prize continues to grow . The most recent week's numbers drawn were 4,14 and 18 ( on 25 May ) and 6 21 and 25 ( on 1 June ). As no-one matched these numbers , the main prize will roll forward to next week where a sizeable sum will be on offer to , perhaps , afford some early summer spending . Consolation prize winners last Tuesday were The Thatch Bar, Pat Tattan, Marie Smart and Charles Smart , and , on the previous week , Paudie Ryan , Darren Stack , Denis O'Brien and Declan Whelan. Tickets for next weeks draw are already on sale in locat outlets and from the Lotto Committee.


Last week's teaser asked "who was captain of the FIRST East Cork Under 12 Football Championship winning Lisgoold side ? The answer was that it was Liam Mulcahy who held , and indeed will always hold that honour . Caolan O'Brien held this particular trophy aloft recently and followed in Liam's proud footprints . This week's poser searches the memory banks , and asks " Which GAA President officially opened Pairc Lios gCul in 1995 ?". Answer next week .
