ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS: There will be a celebration in the Clubhouse on next Saturday evening (9th Nov) commencing at 8.30pm for two winning football teams of the past – our Seniors who are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their Co. Championship win in 1994 and our Minors who won their first Co. Championship title some fifty years ago (1969). Every effort is being made by our Organising Sub-Committee under the guidance of Eddie Barrett and Jim Naughton to contact the 32 Senior players and the 22 Minors (including the families of the players who sadly are no longer with us) who were part of those two panels. So in case we fail to contact everybody this is also an official invitation to all the following players (and family reps in the case of deceased members and also those players who are unable to attend) to come along on the night for what should be a lovely get-together – Senior Panel – Michael Hussey, Liam Liddy, Jerry Fitzmaurice, Pat Slattery, John Galvin (RIP), Kieran Browne, Malachy Nagle, Cormac Kennedy, Pa Laide, Gerry Lynch, Darren Aherne, Denis Sayers, Owen Moynihan, Martin McKivergan, Donal McEvoy, John Barry, John Walsh, Kevin Barry, John Browne, Eddie Dowling, Barry Masterson, Billy O’Lehan, Brian Shanahan, Cathal Naughton, Danny McCannon, Don Shanahan, Ger Teahon, Hugh O’Donnell, John Harrington, Liam O’Carroll, Michael McKenna and Pat Costello. – Minor Panel – Joe Parker, John Crean, John Joe Naughton (RIP), Breannáin Mangan, Ger O’Keeffe, Noel Kelter, Eddie O’Connor, John O’Keeffe (Capt), Pat Dowling, Michael Sugrue, Ger Power, Tommy Kennington, Terry McSweeney, Ciarán Sugrue, Fergus Dillon, Timmy Clifford, Niall Murphy, Tony O’Keeffe, Ger MacNamara, George Dineen, Pat McElligott and Rory McSweeney (RIP). Then on the following day, in Austin Stack Park, all our 1994 Senior Panel will be officially honoured by the Kerry Co. Board during half-time in the SF Co. Championship final.
SENIOR FOOTBALL: With Crokes going through to next Sunday’s Co. Final we must still keep ourselves prepared for the possibility of representing Kerry in the Munster Club Championship should East Kerry win that contest. Note – In the event of a draw next Sunday – Dr. Crokes will go on to represent Kerry in the Munster Club Championship. In the meantime our last round of the Co. League, away to St. Marys, has been brought forward to this Saturday (9th Nov). The game in Cahersiveen throws in at 3pm. Rathmore, who have completed their eleven rounds, top the table on 17 points while ourselves, Crokes, and Dingle (all three are on 14 points) will be battling it out to join Rathmore in the Co. League Final.
CLUBHOUSE: As always the Clubhouse is available for all types of Parties and Functions. Enquiries about Club Bookings should be made by contacting Harry Hynes at 087 2467286.

LOTTO: Last Night’s (4th November) Jackpot, worth €12,450, was not won. The numbers drawn were 12, 17, 26, 28.
The €20 winners were: Neil Dennehy, Anne Sheehan and Eileen Connolly, all c/o Rock Street Post Office; and Brendan O’Regan and Kevin O’Leary, both c/o The Club. Lotto Tickets are on regular sale at the Rock Street Post Office and at the Stacks Clubhouse, as well as from our other regular outlets.
Rock St. Post Office – Make Sure They Know You’re A Rockie! Martin and Marie Williams of the Rock Post Office have set the Tralee GAA Clubs a task where the club whose supporters make the most transactions in the Rock Post Office from now until April 2020 will win the right to exclusively sell their Club Lotto Tickets there. The personal or work place/business transactions include purchase of stamp booklets, TV or Dog licence, registering a letter, one for all Gift Vouchers, mobile top ups, currency exchange, savings or even purchasing your Christmas stamps. Each transaction is worth points and the club. If you are in the Post Office and making a transaction please give your club allegiance at the counter by saying I’m a Rockie. This won’t cost you a penny but will really help the club as Lotto fundraising represents a large part of our annual club income. Be sure and spread the word to family, friends & employers – I’m A Rockie with every transaction.
