There will be more than usual interest in this part of the world in the National Lottery tv draw this Saturday night.

It all revolves around the forthcoming O’Mara Cup final between The Neale and ourselves.

Both clubs have agreed to toss for home venue for the final.

Which is where the tv Lotto draw comes in.

If the bonus ball in the main draw comes out ODD – the match will be in Flanagan Park, Ballinrobe.

If it comes out EVEN – we’ll be on the road to The Neale’s home venue in Cong.

The game will take place on the weekend of April 6/7. Exact date and time to be confirmed soon.

By the way, does anyone know when last The Neale and Ballinrobe clashed in the O’Mara Cup final? Methinks there will be a big crowd whether it’s played in Ballinrobe or Cong. More anon.

    the Neale last played in the O mara cup final v Cl;aremorris in Flanagan park in 1983. The neale were winning by 2 points with mins left when a late Claremorris goal sealed it for them.

    Thanks Dermot. So it must be before that when we clashed, if ever. This could be one for Michael Coyne!

  3. Liam says:

    Were you playing in that final, Dermot? I guess it was Pat Flynn, Sean Luskin, Pat McGrath, Tom Kelly, Eddie Gibbons et al, yes? Do you have the Neale team by any chance?
    I know we won an O’Mara Cup relatively recently. Can anyone recall that year?
