Bride Rovers GAA Notes.

Lotto at €14,000.

The Lotto Jackpot has risen to a massive €14,000 so if you’re not in you can’t win! For just €2 it’s a great chance to win and help the Bride Rovers Club.

At present our hurling wall and astro-turf area are well under way. Development work such as we are doing is expensive but the Club is determined to provide top class facilities.

The Lotto Draw on Tuesday Feb 22 was held in the Rathcormac Inn. The numbers drawn for a jackpot of €13,800 were 18, 22, 25 and 27.

There was no winner therefore a Jackpot of €14,000 was on offer at O Coileains on March 1st. Tickets at €2 each are available from Club Members, local businesses and at Your support is greatly appreciated.

Minor Football.

Under the new Coiste na nOg set up we played our first Minor game last Sunday. In the Minor B Football League we were at home to Slieverue –a two-club combination from the South East Division.

After a one sided first half we came well into the game in the second half. At one stage we had the deficit down to four points but in the end we lost by 1 15 to 0 9.

It was a good display for our first game of the season.

The game is fixed for Pynes Field on Sunday March 6th at 2 0 clock. Minor Hurling training is arranged for the Main Field on Fr4iday night.
