In view of restrictions in place due to the Corona Virus, Ferns St. Aidans GAA and camogie clubs will do what we can to help anyone in the community who may need assistance.
If anyone needs help with the collection of food, medication, or anything else, please call or message Pat Nolan at (087) 9658235, Peter Nolan at (087) 3389488, or Mairéad Cullen at (087) 7514737.
We regret that due to the ongoing Corona Virus situation, all club activities have to be suspended until further notice. This includes training sessions, matches, meetings, and the Registration Night that was due to take place tonight (Friday March 13th).
The suspension will last at least until the end of the month, and may be further extended.
The numbers in last night's Lotto draw were 12, 14, 20 and 22. There was no jackpot winner, and Lucky Dip winners of €40 each were Josie Kinch, Emma Quinn, Maureen Dwyer, and Brian Sinnott.
The jackpot now rises to €7,200 for the next draw, to be held in Dunbars on March 24. Tickets can be bought from the usual sellers or local retailers, or play online via our Lotto page.
The Coiste na nÓg section of the club is trying to pull together a stock of spare helmets for underage teams. These would be used for children who forget to bring their own, or who don't have access to one otherwise. We envisage that we won't need a huge number, so quality is more important is quantity. If anybody has a good condition unused helmet lying around the house, please contact Peter Nolan at (087) 3389488, Jamie Dunbar at (087) 2220827, or anybody involved with an underage team.

Depending on how Wexford progress in the National Leagues, it is hoped to play the first two rounds of football on the last weekend of March and first weekend of April, to be followed by two rounds of hurling on the subsequent two weekends.
Our minor footballers yesterday became the first team of the year to face into championship action, as they took on Shamrocks in the first round of the Division 2 (North) competition. The game had to be moved to Ferns as the Shamrocks pitch was unplayable, and home advantage as well as everything else saw the Ferns lads record a massive win of 13-13 to 1-1. Whoever said the number 13 was unlucky?!
