Last week the 50/50 draw took place on Monday night. The draw took place in Clarkes Bar where the winning blue envelope was drawn and the lucky name on it was Gerard Mc Carthy, Curragh Rua Gerard was the winner of won €358. The club thanks you for your support and encourages everyone to support the draw weekly. The weekly blue 50/50 envelopes are on sale locally throughout the town for €2 alternatively, you can purchase a pink ticket that allows you into the draw for 1 year for a price of €100.

The club bowed out of the senior championship of 2016 when they played Mostrim in their final game of group. Unfortunately, our fate was already known and what faces us in 2017 is a return to Intermediate football. With the departure of so many players this year the weight of responsibility fell on the shoulders of young men. We must commend every player that made themselves available and thank them for their huge efforts.

The future from now until the commencement of competitions next year is the further development of our team and to make every effort to rebound too senior during 2017. We have very talented young players and when we look back at the some of their games during the year we see that it was only inexperience that cost us vital scores to win games. We surely have learned from the experience and that experience will stand to us as we go forward.

We have two final league games against Slashers and Mostrim to finish off our league and we would like to see the lads taking 4 points from these two games.
