Carrick Swan Club thanks all those who continue to play the Juvenile Lotto and reminds those who might like to join that weekly entry costs €2 and this can be paid to any committee member, or to any lotto promoter, who will call to collect the money each week. This week’s jackpot prize is €5,750.

The public’s continued support helps it provide for all its juvenile players and is very much appreciated by all in the Swan Club.

The Club wishes Colin Waters from the minor hurling team a speedy recovery from a serious hand injury he suffered last week. The Club hopes to see him back in action after he recovers over the winter months.
