Senior Ladies

Buncrana 2-14 St Nauls 5-3 Our Senior Ladies qualified for the County semi-final after a hard fought game against a very good St Naul’s team in an outstanding team performance.

Club Lotto

No winner in last week’s Lotto. The numbers drawn were 1,4,10,13. As the Jackpot wasn’t won we then held the €500 monthly draw took place in Phil Hegarty’s and was won by Willie McLaughlin Winkers who purchased his ticket in Phil’s just before the draw was held. A great night’s fun was had by all but Willie’s cheque had dwindled quite a bit by the end of the night. Thanks to Patsy and Siobhan for the use of their premises for the draw.
