Club Notes.. - 11/03/2018

Weather plays Havoc ...

The lethal combination of Storm Emma and the Wind from Siberia yielded a woeful cocktail of extreme weather events last week. The adverse conditions stretched into the weekend wreaking havoc with all sports fixtures at national and local level. We had two games scheduled, Senior Hurling League v Ballyhea and the first round of the under 21 FC against Carrignavar and  both were cancelled. The Under 21 game goes ahead next Sunday while the Ballyhea game is yet to be refixed.

No Jackpot Winner of €19,600.

On Tuesday February the 27th the Jackpot in our weekly Lotto was €19,600. The four numbers drawn were 3,6,22 and 31 and there was no Jackpot winner. The winners of  €30 each were Niamh & Jack Johnson, Anne Marie Carey, C O'Brien & H O'Mahony c/o LAYA, Tom & Nellie Barry and Mag Pierce, Glanworth. Tickets for the Lotto are just €2 each and can be bought from Club members, in local business outlets and online at Your ongoing support of the Lotto is really appreciated. The Income from the weekly Lotto is vital in helping with the day-to-day running of the Club. The Jackpot for last Tuesday March the 6th was €19,600.

Club 100

The Club 100 scheme is well underway.  Club Members promoting the Club 100 initiative will be contacting and calling to households in the Parish over the next few weeks. We are hoping for a good response. The whole idea is to create an income stream for the Club over the next few years to ensure we can have sufficient funds to undertake the major Development work we plan to undertake. The three options on offer provide a mixture of weekly and monthly Draw membership -Lotto and GAA Members Draw, Club Membership and a donation towards our Development Fund. We have named the three options as Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The Gold option costs €9.24 per week,  €40 per month or €480 per year. For this you get;

Full Club Membership for you and your family Cork GAA Club Draw Ticket 2 Bride Rovers GAA Club Yearly Lotto Tickets Entry to Club 100 Bonus Draw The Silver option costs  €6.93 per week,  €30 per month or  €360 per year. For this you get;

50 Years Ago. We were drawn against Castlemartyr -they beat us in the JAHC in 1967, and the playing season started on Feb 25th with a loss to Owenacurra Rovers in a Challenge game in Lisgoold. The first two games in the East Cork JAHL saw us beat Carrignavar and Watergrasshill.  On St Patrick's Day Seanie Barry won a Railway Cup medal with Munster, beating Leinster by 14 points to 120 in Croke Park. Fr Bertie Troy showed films of old All Ireland Finals in both Bartlemy and Rathcormac Halls in march, making a profit of £6,4s,6d for the Club.
