We congratulate Neil Ewing, Jamie Gillen and the Sligo senior footballers on their fine victory over Westmeath in the Division 3 of the Allianz football league last Sunday. Hard luck to the ladies, who were beaten by Clare in Division 2 of the Lidl NFL.
Thank you to everyone who supported our club table quiz and raffle on Saturday night in Harry's Bar & Gastro Pub, Rosses Point. Despite the cryptic questions, it was a very enjoyable night and valuable funds were raised for the club. Congratulations to the winning team of Michael O'Brien, Padraig Keane, Fergal Keane & Declan O'Brien who generously donated their prize money back to the club. We would also like to thank Fenton Ewing and his staff of Harry's for their hospitality and Fenton's generous donation to the club. Brian Coyle of Coyle's Centra Cartron donated a number of raffle prizes which is very much appreciated. Thanks also to the other sponsors of prizes which resulted in a large sum raised from the raffle. Special thanks must go to event organiser Des Henry, who was also quizmaster on night, and to Carol O'Brien, Michelle Coyle-Henry, Shane Campbell & Jimmy O'Brien for helping out.
