Belated Happy St Patrick’s Day to everyone, I hope it was a pleasant day for all. These are strange times and new experiences for everyone.

There was no winner of the lotto held on 11th March, the numbers drawn were 3 5 21 27. The €40 lucky dip went to Sheena and Jack Kenny, Promotor Carmel Murphy, the €20 lucky dips have gone to John O’Brien, Vale View, Promotor Donie O’Sullivan, Shirley Fitzgerald, Ballinanima, Promotor Brendan O’Brien, Siobhan Danaher, Ballinlyna, Promotor Con Danaher, Kelly and Zoe Walsh, Kilmallock, Promotor Breda Walsh.

The next lotto will be in Healy’s bar for a jackpot of €11,300. However it is with regret that we are postponing the lotto until the current covid-19 virus issue has settled. For the safety of our lotto family we have taken this decision. All tickets sold for this week will be entered in the next draw. All our many yearly lotto patrons will have these weeks added to their year at the end.

Limerick GAA have issued a statement postponing all championship matches due to be held in April. The county leagues will resume when approved by the Statutory bodies. All club activities have ceased while the current crisis remains and the field and facilities are closed to avoid the spread of the virus.

We very much regret this disruption for all our patrons and we wish everyone the very best through this trying time. Support local businesses when you can and best wishes to all local businesses which have had to close temporarily. Our thoughts also go to all people working with the public in all capacities. Stay safe people, and be courteous and kind to all.
