Valleymount club notes

January 07, 2019

Our Lotto draw was held at the weekend and there was no winner of the jackpot. The numbers were 3-8-17-28. The three €25 winners were Amby Miley, David Shaw and Marie Brophy. Our next lotto draw will be on Saturday 19th January with a jackpot of €6800. Congratulations and thanks for the support.

Our Winter Wonderland in the GAA grounds in late December was a marvellous success. From the stalls in the clubhouse to the magical trail that lead to the Santa's grotto, there was something for everyone! Massive thanks to the fundraising committee who worked hard to make the day a success along with the club members who helped out, it is very much appreciated. Our fourth and final €100 fundraiser draw was held on the 16th December 2018. The winners were: €500 - Christy Miley, €500 - Deirdre Miley, €100 - Brendan Hughes Snr, €100 - Helen and John Keogh, Oven - Ann Mooney, Valleymount Foods Hamper - Orlaith Byrne and Jack Boud, McGreals Hamper - Emma Richardson, Avon Rí voucher - Andy Farrington, Tulfarris voucher - Bríd Kinnane & Hollywood Inn House Red & White wine - Anthony Miley. Congratulations to all the winners throughout the year and a big thanks to the local businesses who sponsored prizes. We hope to run a similar fundraiser again in the new year.
