Club Lotto, Jackpot is won!
The big news this week is that our Lotto Jackpot has been won by long time lotto supporter Charlotte O’ Connor, Killeenagh Mountain, Knockanore. The winning numbers were 1-7-8-10, so congratulations to Charlotte who won a total of €11,350. €20 winners were Tadhg & Eoin Keane, Dan Walsh, Helen O’ Donovan, James Baldwin, Sandy & Ella McGrath. Next week’s jackpot will start off at €1,500.
1st round hurling championship game postponed.Because of Waterford’s great win over Galway in last Sunday’s league semi final, our first round hurling championship match against Stradbally, which was to have been on this Saturday, has now been postponed. So now it looks like our first championship match will be against An Rinn on Sunday week 7th April in Dungarvan.
Well done girls!
Congratulations to Shamrock ladies football players Catherine Hynes and Aobhla Motherway who both played for Waterford U-16 football team who had a big win over Limerick in the Munster Championship last Sunday. They now have a Munster Final to look forward to at the end of April. Congratulations from all in the club.
League Final for the Deise.
It wasn’t until Mikey Kearney was sent off (unfairly in my opinion) that I thought Waterford really showed the greater appetite to get over the line in last Sunday’s League semi final in Nowlan Park. Although the standard and the intensity were somewhat lacking, Waterford did just enough to get to next Sunday’s final in Croke Park, but there’s plenty of room for improvement. Colm Roche kept himself in the picture with a late appearance, and the Deise can now look forward to a first final appearance since 2016 when they lost to Clare after a replay, and of course we won it in 2015 beating Cork in the final. So Limerick will be favourites as All Ireland Champions, but Waterford have a habit of upsetting the odds…. ‘Hon the Deise’
