CLUB NOTES FOR WEEK ENDING SUNDAY 3 APRIL 2016
SENIOR & RESERVE GAME : EASTER MONDAY
The Reserves lost out by just 3 points, 1-10 to 0-10 and the seniors lost out by the minimum on a final scoreline of 0-7 to -0-8 and were very unlucky not to share the points from their opening game of the league. With Donegal away to Monaghan this weekend, the seniors have no game while the Reserve team are scheduled to travel to Naomh Conaill to play their reserve fixture from two weeks ago at 6pm at Davy Brennan Park, Glenties on Saturday.
BINGO IS BACK!
Friday night at 9pm in An Craoibhín sees bingo resume after Good Friday, and we look forward to your continued support. With prizes of €2,600 guaranteed on the night, it is an excellent outing at the end of the week.
Last week’s lotto draw took place in McClafferty’s, Church Hill. Conall McGettigan matched 3 and won €80, and open draw winners were Roisín McCafferty and Dickie McGranaghan. This week’s draw takes place in the Glenveagh Inn with Kevin McElwaine and Conor Tinney co-ordinating.
