Lotto: The draw was held in The Porter House, Drumlish on Monday last, May 15th. The jackpot was €6,000. The results are currently available on the club website and will be in next week’s notes. Tickets are available from the usual outlets and from any member of the executive.

Junior Team: There is Division 3 action for our Junior team this week as we are at home to Legan Sarsfields at 8.30pm this Friday.

Senior Team: We had our final Bertie Allen Cup match last Friday evening at home to Mullinalaghta. The match did not mean anything to either side as neither of us could qualify for the semi finals. Nonetheless, we did not perform as well as we could have and Mullinalaghta won out 1-12 to 0-8. The team and scorers were as follows:

Michael Heslin, Emmett Noonan, Cian Brady, Dan Gorman, Mark Hughes, Liam Lynch, Nigel Kiernan, Kevin Whelan (0-1), Seán Whelan, Ciarán Cooney, Diarmuid Cooney, David Collum, Martin Cassidy (0-3(2f)), Pauric Gill (0-1), Petie Collum (0-3(2f).

Substitutions: Dean Cosgrave for Ciarán Cooney, Mark Duffy for David Collum, Mickey Kelly for Nigel Kiernan, Mark Breslin for Pauric Gill and Mike Kiernan for Seán Whelan.

We wish Ciarán Cooney and Pauric Gill speedy recoveries from the injuries sustained during the course of the match.

Longford Seniors: Best of luck to Paddy Collum and the Longford team & management in the first round of the Leinster Championship away to Laois this Sunday coming in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise. Throw in is at 3pm.

Dublin U-17s: An interesting challenge took place on Saturday last in Monaduff between the U-17 teams of Dublin and Mayo. This match was of particular local interest given that our own Frank McNamee is the manager of Dublin. We wish Frank the best of luck in this role.

Welcome Home:Everyone at the club would like to welcome David Cassidy back home. David came back from Prague last Friday and it is fantastic to see him out and about once again.
