Last Man Standing

There are just 13 people left standing after last weekend’s National Football League action.

Dublin’s failure to beat Monaghan saw a number of entrants eliminated. A few games were postponed due to the adverse weather but, as stated in the rules at the start of the competition, if you had one of these teams you are automatically given the win.

Next weekend is hurling only, the fixtures for which will be sent to those still in contention for the €400 prize.

The late Stephen Crowe

We were shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Stephen Crowe in his adopted home of San Francisco last week.

Aged 46, Stephen was a popular young man who co-founded the Celtic Chaos theme camp and played underage football with us in the 1980s. His father Pat hailed from Tipperary and brought with him a deep love for hurling. Indeed, he coached hurling in the local primary school for a number of years.

To Pat and Stephen's heartbroken siblings Madeline, Martin and James, we extend our deepest sympathy.

Condolences are also extended to the family of Mick Power, late of Knockdrin, Mullingar. Mick was a former Cullion and Westmeath hurler who later served as Westmeath hurling board chairman and Central Council delegate.


Last week's lucky numbers were 8, 11, 18 and 20. Moss Keenan, Aidan Nannery, Aidan Ryan and Eddie Rafferty were the Match 3 winners. This week's draw takes place in Larrigy’s with the jackpot standing at €13,900. Tickets, costing €2, can be purchased locally. Thank you for your continued support.
