Lotto. The lotto worth €4000 and held in Kelly’s Bar Main St was not won. Next Jackpot worth €4200 is in Bennett’s Pub.Championship. This has not been a good week for our adult teams. On Thursday our Junior footballers were unable to field against Ballyfin in the championship and had to concede the game. This completes our involvement in football. On Saturday in the first round of the Senior B hurling championship at O Moore Park, we were simply not good enough on the day to match a very impressive Ballinakill.
