Mitchelstown Rugby Club – The run continues

Junior 1 Division 3 league


Mitchelstown 19 Ennis 18

The league campaign continued with a fine win in Currabowen, with the result in the balance until the final whistle, leaving the boys in second place in the table behind Tralee. Killarney having lost at Dungarvan, dropped a place.

It was a bleak, windy, and wet day with the breeze blowing into the dressing room corner. Ennis came with all guns blazing, and by the first quarter had a two try, thirteen point margin, with no conversion kicked. We had to wait for the dying embers of the half to see Sean Myers cross for the first home score. So, an uphill climb was the order of the day for the second period.

The boys did not disappoint, and a superb break by Euan Dunne for a try after 15 minutes reduced the deficit to a single point when expertly converted by Patrick Magee. Ennis rallied bravely and another unconverted try gave them a margin of six points. A controversial “forward pass” thwarted what was the best attacking play of the game by Mitchelstown, but it was left to Owen Burke to finish off the scoring with another try which made the score 18-17 to Ennis. Patrick Magee did not flinch under the pressure, and slotted home the conversion to rapturous applause. We were joined in Jackie O’Brien’s by many of the Ennis team who really appreciated the fine buffet and soup on offer, and were astonished by the special offer for matchday pints.

The next league game is away to Corca Dhuibhne at 2.30 pm on Sunday, where a good result will come close to ensuring a play-off spot.

LOTTO - € 1,400 LOTTO next Sunday.

No lottery winner last Sunday week in The Mulberry Tree, whose imminent demise was strenuously denied by Densie, where we concluded the draw. The numbers drawn were 3, 8, 9, and 22. There was no jackpot winner.

Many thanks to all the staff of the bar for facilitating last week’s draw, and for the sustaining beverages. Lucky dip winners: John Callaghan ( Doneraile ) - €50, Damian Lambe - €50, John Quane - €25, Jim Hedderman - €25

The next draw will be Sunday, 20th January, in Dexy’sBar, which is famous for its glamorous cocktails.

The new jackpot will be €1,400 for a single winner, or shared if more than one winner.

Entry is only €2 per pick of 4 numbers or 3 tickets for €5.

Remember, the odds of getting 4 numbers in our lottery is very close to the same as getting 4 numbers in the national lottery, but our prize is far bigger.

Annual tickets are available at €50 for 26 draws, with a bonus draw only for annuals. Contact Owen on 087-8112991 for annual tickets, or any other committee member. Rugby Club Lotto is now also available to play online at
