Castlebar play Cavan next Saturday afternoon in Cloondeash in the Larry Burke Cup. This cup commemorates Larry Burke of Springfield, a member of a long established Castlebar family, who played for Cavan. He worked for the Inland Fisheries in Cavan and after his untimely death this competition was launched in his memory and is played each year alternately in Cavan and Castlebar as a pre-season fixture. Larry’s son, also named Larry, plays with Cavan and a large crowd is expected in Cloondeash for this fixture. The lotto draw was held on Friday night in Mick Byrne’s Bar on Friday night September 5. The jackpot is now € 10,000. There was no jackpot winner. The match three winners in the lotto were: Ian Fanning, Dr Peter Staunton, Miriam Walshe, John Gibbons. Annual lotto tickets are currently available from club committee members. Castlebar Rugby Club would like to thank everyone who contributes and we greatly appreciate your help in raising funds to develop the facilities at Cloondeash.
