The Harps Lotto jackpot, now £4500, was not won on Sunday night. The numbers drawn were 3, 9, 11 and 26. £20 each went to James Timmins, Newtownbutler, Charlie Jones, Crott and Katie Cassidy, Derrygonnelly. The supervisors for Sunday night’s draw will be Pat McGurn and Michael Glynn, along with Mary Cox. We are very grateful for the support we are receiving, with many people buying online entries plus people leaving envelopes in our containers.

In terms of the GAA’s anti Covid-19 measures, things have been moving at quite a pace over the last few weeks, with contact training now permissible in reduced groups. For all teams hoping to train and eventually play, two key pieces of the jigsaw are the completion of the GAA’s e-module on Covid-19 measures, and also the completion of a health questionnaire, which will become a reference point as players attend subsequent sessions. This is a period requiring clubs to put a lot of measures in place, administrative and practical. The levels of accountability are high, so we wish to proceed very carefully. We will communicate with our members as best we can when we reach different stages of activities or have dates of competitions commencing and we will be reviewing possibilities as we move forward. We are unlikely to return to normal weekly activities as in the past for a long time yet, but it is good to see that such a positive outlet is back on the list of possibilities for groups of our members.

Finally, it was with sadness that Harps members heard of a number of bereavements in Botha parish last week, to Peter McGowan, a very longstanding Harps supporter and his brother Tommy, many condolences on the passing of their sister Mrs Cox in Belleek, and sympathies are also extended to the Hoy and Dolan families on their bereavements last week.
