C.J. Kickhams GAA

Last week was a somewhat better one for C.J. Kickhams. On Wednesday night our hurlers surprised many when they had a narrow two points win in the St. Mollerans Tournament in Carrick-on-Suir. Their opponents were the Wexford club Rapparees. They were then to play host club St.Mollerans in the next round on last Saturday night, but this game was postponed.  Instead, we played Barrow Rangers in a challenge game on Saturday afternoon. This we won. One of the most pleasing aspects of the week was the way our playing pitch dried up so quickly after the heavy rain of the previous weekend. Our club is currently, in conjunction  with Tipperary County Board drawing up a three year plan for the future development of our club. Recently, the question was raised how many underage players has the club coached over the last two decades? With six  grades from U6 to U16 the figure is far higher than most people would think

Local Lotto

The last local lotto draw took place on Monday March 2nd. The numbers drawn were 1,4,12 and 28. There was no jackpot winner, but we had 5 Match 3 winners.  Congrats to Conor and Denise, Eddie Brett, Jim Cahill, Doireann Walsh and Pauline Brett who shared €150. Next draw will be on Monday March 16th when the jackpot could be worth €10,750. Wouldn't St. Patrick be delighted to win it.
