Bray People - - Sports -

Hello folks hope you all had a great Christ­mas. The fol­low­ing were the lucky win­ners of meat vouch­ers in the draw held on Mon­day night, De­cem­ber 22.

Mick Ryan c/o Maggs Gre­gory, John Hef­fer­nan c/o Maggs Gre­gory, Phyl­lis McMa­hon c/o Maggs Gre­gory, Rose­marie Beale c/o Seán O’Con­nor and John Doyle c/o self. Sell­ers prizes: Rose Duffy, Murty Doyle, Deirdre McDon­ald, Mar­garet Doyle, and Bernie Dunne.

The re­sult of lotto draw held on the same date: num­bers drawn: 314-20-26. The jack­pot is now SIX THOU­SAND EURO, well worth hav­ing a go.

The Mass held on Sun­day morn­ing last in the grave­yard for all de­ceased mem­bers of Rath­new G.A.A. and also com­mem­o­rat­ing the death of ‘The great Tim Doyle’ was a great suc­cess, and will now be an an­nual event in the cal­en­der of our club. Many thanks to all who turned out on a very cold and frosty morn­ing, thanks to Pat Mitchell for his read­ing and Si­mon Dunne for his de­liv­ery of a poem writ­ten for Tim Doyle R.I.P. Our own Fr. Der­mot gave a lovely mov­ing ser­mon, and in the back­ground the strains of the pipes could be heard all round the Vil­lage played by that great piper Paddy Cana­van.

We send best wishes for a speedy re­cov­ery to Rath­new man Jim (Pack­ers) Doyle who hails from “The Furry Brow” and has been liv­ing in Wales for many years, get well soon Jim and we hope to hear you sing a few songs again soon in your na­tive ‘Vil­lage’.

Freddy Quinn (se­nior) orig­i­nally from “The Bank” is also in hospi­tal and we send him best wishes, and Billy Jame­son from the Lower Road is also sent all the very best for a speedy re­cov­ery from all in the club.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Jonathon ( Wob­bles) Howes and Sylvia Clare on the birth of their lit­tle boy Charles An­thony.

And we had mile­stone birthdays cel­e­brated over the Christ­mas. Ju­nior player Robert Byrne was “21”, and I will be in trou­ble for this next one folks, but it is of­fi­cial, Harry Mur­phy cel­e­brated his “50th”.

We ex­tend deep­est sym­pa­thy to Sea­mus Kelly and fam­ily on the death of his fa­ther, also to the Dig­nim and Byrne fam­i­lies on the death of their aunt Pat­tie O’Cal­laghan R.I.P.
