Aughavas GAA Club Notes 10/10/2018

LOTTO: Our next lotto draw will be held in “The Dugout” on Saturday 13th October.  Jackpot is €11,900. St Joseph’s ladies team are hosting the draw. Lotto envelopes €2 each or three envelopes for €5.

ST JOSEPH’S BOY’S: Well done to our U15’s with two important victories during the week.  On Monday evening last we travelled to Kilturbid and after a close first half we pulled away to win comfortably in the end.  It was a similar story on Friday evening when Annaduff came to Carrigallen. Next game is against Fenagh in Fenagh on Saturday morning and the boys will be hoping for victory here also to be sure of a semi-final place.  Good luck to the team and management.  Good luck to all the St Joseph’s players and team mates on the County U16 team that take on Longford on Saturday morning in the Fr. Manning Cup.

 SYMPATHY: Aughavas GAA Club and St Joseph’s Ladies would like to extend their sincere sympathy to the Gallogly family (Corduff) on the death of Margaret’s Brother Michael (Mickie) Bohan, Funshinagh, Keshcarrigan, and Uncle to Fergal, Vanessa and Fintan.  Mickie was a well-known figure in the Aughavas area and a big supporter of our annual trip to Croagh Patrick.  May he Rest in Peace.
