They say things happen in threes.
Well when it comes to a bit of luck, that certainly seems to be the case for Sammy Burrows!
Sammy must be the envy of most punters when his ticket was drawn out for the third time in the Termon GAA Club 300 development draw.
Burrows, a former Termon player of note and now semi-retired aerial erector,
He recalls his playing days with gusto when being taken in the rear of Termon manager Paddy Murray’s little brown Morris Mini IIH 293 to Convoy for a county minor trial back in 1970.
At that time homeless Termon were playing in what was called Strain’s Field near the Old Graveyard in Killmacrenan.
Burrows who never had a lot of luck previously in draws felt he had to support this fundraised to develop the new clubhouse at the Burn Road.
As he received his cheque from promoter James Trearty Burrowns quipped “It’s a good job the pubs are closed for I would need to buy drinks for a week.”
