Rhode GAA club notes
Division 1 League Champions
Massive Congratulations to Rhode Senior Footballers and management on retaining the Casey Cup named after Rhode and Offaly Legends Mick and Paddy Casey beating Ferbane 1-16 to 1-08. Rhode got off to a slow start with Ferbane going 3 points to no score up but following a small wrangle it lifted Rhode and they drove on to go 10 points to 0-4 points up at half-time. A further sporting battle continued but Ferbane had no match for a hungry Rhode with the final score reading 1-16 to 1-08. A wonderful way to finish off a wonderful year retaining both the Dowling and Casey Cups.
Rhode GAA Club would like to thank Paschal and his management team for their excellent work over the past two years. Paschal has giving massive dedication to the club as a player winning 7 Senior Championships and Team manager in which he guided Rhode to success winning back to back Senior County Championships and Division 1 League Titles in 2016 & 2017. We wish Paschal all the very best in his new role as a coach with Tipperary Senior Footballers.

The good news is when you play the lotto online you are entitled to free draws, for example, pay for seven draws, receive the eighth one free, pay for fourteen draws receive two free and so on. In other words, the more you play the more free draws you are entitled to.
