Our Annual Club Lotto memberships are due for renewal at the end of March so each member by now should have received their renewal packs in the past week so we would hope for each and every member’s continued support for the coming year. It is the main income generator on an annual basis for our club and we believe its a good value membership that gets you 3 chances to win each and every week. Your local lotto club rep will be calling to each member over the next couple of weeks to discuss further.

Western Gaels made a bright start to the game and built up a strong lead with some fine points by Niall Higgins and John Duffy and a goal from the penalty spot from Niall Higgins ensured we led by 6 at the interval 1-09 to 1-03. Castlerea to their credit battled right through the 2nd half and there was only a point between the teams with 10 minutes left but points from Niall Higgins, Sean Carroll and Conor Casserley made the points safe on a final scoreline of 1-14 to 2-07.
