Club Lotto! There was no winning combination at the Club Lotto on Monday night and the jackpot continues to grow; it is now €2,900. The numbers drawn were 10, 22, 24 and 28: Sharon McDaniel won the €50 voucher; Ollie Martin and Theresa Toal got the €20 vouchers while P/M Joyce got the €10. Thanks to everyone who has continued to support the club Lotto it is the mainstay of our financial stability and although financially down owing to the prevailing circumstances; it still provides an accumulative income over a twelve-month period which in turn reassures us to progress forward with the day-to-day running of the club. Thanks to all who do their numbers on-line which is increasing every week, it is a convenient means of doing the Lotto with plenty of options to play. We also urge your support through the following business premises where envelopes are available; O’Rourke’s Fuel, Birdy’s and Walsh’s Newsagents and Carrick Butchers: Otherwise you can download the Clubforce App or visit the Emmets website to do the Lotto on-line.

300 Club Draw! Last Saturday afternoon the second draw took place in the grounds of the Emmet Centre. The chairman Pat Egan introduced proceedings and thanked everyone who entered the draw and he paid tribute to the frontline workers within the club and wider afield. Long time Emmet stalwart and devotee Terry Kiernan drew the six numbers with the first prize at €500 followed by five €100 prizes. Vice Chairman Padraig McNally was the regulator and Tony Gartlan joined the group as a supervisor. The first name out of the drum was number 299 which was Shane Egan who lives in Co Clare: The following were the €100 winners; Keith Lane (244) Tommy and Nichole (279) Michael Hughes/Gerry Jones (221) Mary/John Kerley (152) and finally Frank Kierans (184) Once again thanks to all as we look forward to the November draw.  

In General! We will shortly announce the date and format of the Emmets Annual General meeting after the review of the present level of Covid restrictions are announced next week. The Christmas Swim Committee are also working on plans and again we intend to hold our 40th the Annual charity event on Christmas morning under whatever guidelines are in place. Regarding club games and fixtures it was disappointing for the under-fifteen Division five team not to be in a position to play their final as the new restrictions beat them by a couple of days hopefully in the not too distant future we will have the pleasure of seeing in the final. The Reserve team competition was also  side-lined and again  with some luck they will get the chance to finish their schedule in the Crawley Cup. 

A Hundred Years Ago! Very few matches were recorded in 1920 but at the Killanny Athletic Carnival and Donkey Races a tournament fixture between Carrickmacross Emmets and Killanny in aid of Killanny Church fund was played however no report or score of the match is on record. The remainder of 1920 was taken up by the troubles and upset the running of the GAA pursuits to such an extent that the County championship was never completed in 1920. Nevertheless Carrickmacross played Donaghmoyne at the latter grounds on Sunday 4th July and after a great game the Emmets won on a scoreline of 2-01 to 1-01. The return match was fixed for Carrickmacross on the following Sunday! Carrickmacross; Downey; Connolly; Farmer; Nugent; Donoghue; Kelly; Cullinan; Duffy; Logan; Carragher; Ward; Reilly; Murtagh; McMahon and Marron. A Gaelic Football Match was played between the Hunger-Strikers (Monaghan Brigade) v Co Monaghan selection. The former won by 1 goal and 2 points to 1 goal and 1 point:
