The local lotto draw took place on Sunday night last. Numbers drawn were 21, 24, 25, 27. There was no jackpot winner. 40 euro went to Declan Shanley. 20 euro each went to Niamh McPartland , Jimmy Skelly and Mary Lynch. The next draw will be held on Sunday 13th March in Magans Killashee for a jackpot of 13620 euro. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.


Over the coming weeks the club will be delivering each house with a letter and application form for membership and also yearly lotto subscription. It is vital that we get all the community involved in our club and you can show your support by becoming a member and being part of a club that are all working the same goals. Our yearly subscription is a great way to ensure your numbers are in every draw. Club membership is now due and can be got from registrar Pat Farrell or any committee member. 40 euro for players, 20 euro for non players and students. 50 euro family rate. As its that time of year again and with Cheltenham only around the corner, all you racing experts will be glad to hear that St Brigids GAA is holding its annual race night in the Richmond Inn Clondra on 16th March commencing at 9pm. A fantastic night’s entertainment is in store with both horses and jockeys in a rigorous training regime !


We are in the process of getting community alert signs made up and will be erecting them in the coming weeks throughout the area. Commmunity Liason Officer Tom Killian has been making visits to our community over the past number of weeks and will be continuing to do so. We will also be going around to the older members of our community with application forms and information regarding getting a personal monitored alert system installed. This is a grant approved scheme with certain criteria having to be met. Your designated area rep will be in contact regarding these initiatives. The group wishes to extend deepest sympathy to the Cox family Begnagh on the recent death of Frank Cox. May his soul rest in peace.


Deepest sympathy is extended to David Duke Clondra on the recent death of his brother Vincent, Leixlip and formerly of Clondra. May his soul rest in peace.
