Numbers drawn in the Lotto last night were 1, 19, 20, and 22, and there was no jackpot winner.
This means the jackpot now increases to €13,600 for the next draw, to be held in The Thatch on Tuesday November 8. You can buy tickets online now for your chance to win!
Lucky Dip winners last night were Mary Roche (Tombrack), Ciarán Foley (c/o Murray Waste), Des O'Neill, and Ellen Doyle.
After all the joy and disappointment and ups and downs that a playing year brings, we've got just one more match left for 2016, as our Minor Hurlers take on Rathnure in their Shield Final in St Patrick's Park at 11 a.m. next Sunday morning (October 16).
This team has definitely been through a lot on its way to the final (!) but hopefully all the hard work and other trials along the way will pay off in the end with a good performance and a victory on Sunday. It would be a great way to round off the year.
We wish best of luck to the team and their mentors, and we hope to see plenty of support there.
Tomorrow (Saturday) is the big day for our intermediate footballers as they renew battle with Taghmon/Camross in the fight for a spot in the county final.
Ferns went close to pulling off a shock result in the drawn game, played in dreadful conditions. The weather forecast is much better for tomorrow - and we hope the result will be better too. Throw-in at Wexford Park is at 3.45 p.m., and we hope to have plenty of support there.
There's more football then on Sunday as our Junior B team take on Realt Na Mara (Ballygarrett) in the Gorey District Final at Pairc Uí Siocháin in Gorey at 5 p.m., and we wish them the best of luck too.
And don't forget the camogie club have their shield final against Glynn/Barntown in Bellefield at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Hopefully we'll see three Ferns victories this weekend!
Ferns supporters will have a choice of venues next Saturday (October 8) as both the senior camogie team and the intermediate football team have big games on.
The camogie crew are up against Glynn/Barntown in their Shield Final in Bellefield at 2 p.m., while the footballers take on Taghmon/Camross in their county semi-final at 3.45 p.m. There's always the choice of going from Bellefield straight to Wexford, but it would be tight!
Hopefully both teams will get lots of support anyway...and hopefully both will win.
The might of Oulart/The Ballagh proved a step too far in the Pettitt's Senior Hurling Championship semi-final in sunny Wexford Park today, as Ferns fell by 4-16 to 0-17.
Ferns had the better of the opening ten minutes and it looked as though a real contest was on the cards as we opened up a 0-5 to 0-2 lead, but Oulart's first goal squared things up and they soon began to open up a lead. That lead became even greater with a somewhat controversial penalty on 27 minutes, apparently awarded for some sort of pushing/dragging combination by Pádraig Bolger and Brian O'Neill on an Oulart man while a long ball was dropping in - never mind the fact that the ball was dropping at least ten yards away, to where John Breen was standing ready to collect, all by himself.
That second goal may have been a turning point as it opened up a bit of daylight between the sides, but truth told, Oulart were the better side all round, especially in the second half, and they were good value for their 4-16 to 0-17 victory in the end.
They will play Cloughbawn in the final, after Cloughbawn beat Glynn/Barntown by 2-11 to 1-12 in the second semi-final.
