Congratulations and best wishes to local man, Johnny Marlowe, Foigha who won the handsome sum of 15,000 euro in the Kenagh GAA Lotto last Monday night, April 13th. We were all most delighted with Johnnyâ€™s big win and no better man than Johnny to win the prize, having given his life time to GAA affairs at local and county level, knowing Johnny as we do, there is no doubt but the money will be wisely spent, not just on himself but on his family also. The lucky numbers were 5, 7, 8, 11. A presentation of the cheque will be made on Sunday night, April 19 in Leaveyâ€™s bar in Foigha. Happy spending Johnny. A new draw begins on this Sunday night with 10,000 euro on offer.

We offer sincere sympathy to the Larkin family and extended families on the very sudden death of Pat Larkin, Kilcurry which occurred on his farm on Thursday last, April 17.

He was buried in Carrickedmond cemetery after 12 oâ€™clock mass in Carrickedmond church last Sunday morning. We also offer our sympathy to the Murphy family, Moydow on the death of Tony Murphy at a comparatively young age. Tony was one of a large family who lived on the family farm at Clonker all his life.
