SARSFIELDS Well done to the Seniors who picked up their first positive result of the year with a 2-10 each draw away to Shelmaliers in the league on Thursday.

The Juniors conceded a walkover to Fethard.

Best wishes to the Minors who will travel to Horeswood to play Dunbrody Gaels in their third championship game on Sunday at 11 a.m.

Best wishes also to St. Peter's College in their quest to reach the All-Ireland Senior football 'A' final when they take on St. Mary's (Magherafelt) in Drogheda on Wednesday at 2 p.m.

Dylan Furlong limbered up for the game in impressive fashion when he contributed 1-2 in their 3-13 to 0-9 win over Patrician (Newbridge) in the South Leinster league final on Monday of last week. We wish Dylan, and the other clubmen on the panel, the very best of luck.

The winning lotto numbers on March 20 were 8, 20, 22 and 30. There was no jackpot winner, and next week's jackpot is €11,000.


The club extends congratulations to our hard-working Secretary and Senior squad selector Podge Cronin who cherished a sweet All-Ireland Club Senior football championship victory with his native Dr. Crokes of Killarney. Best wishes are also extended to Joanne Doran, whose home club of Cuala claimed the hurling title.

Get well soon wishes are extended to under-age selector Kieran O'Dwyer, who is recovering from a recent illness.

Thanks to all who supported the club's bake sale and club gear exchange last weekend. Special thanks to Colette Kinsella and Noreen Stafford.
