We are now in the final week of the Ladies 9 hole Winter league which concludes on Saturday. The worst week score from each team will be discounted so it could make all the difference in the final scores!
The numbers drawn on the 11th November were 3, 8, 10 and 12 and there were no winners of the 2,100 jackpot which now stands at 2,200. The 5 lucky dippers each winning 20 were Joe O’Reilly G4, Gregory Nicholl Clones, Michael Treanor Clones, Marie Langan Cootehill and Ona Fyffe Clones. Well done to them!
