Rathcline Club Notes 10th January 2016

posted 10 Jan 2016, 11:26 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Dinner Dance – Our long awaited dinner dance is just under two weeks away. The event will take place in the Radisson Blu Hotel Athlone on Saturday 23rd January. The players will be presented with medals on the night, along with player of the year awards and our two cups will be on show. Also on the night we are going to honour the 1976 team who 40 years ago this year won the senior championship. Tickets are priced at €35 which will include a 4 course meal and music afterwards by the band 4Degrees West, followed by DJ Tommy K. A great occasion this promises to be for all parishioners. Tickets are available from O’Brien’s shop and people are urged to get their tickets on good time.

New Year’s Draw – Our New Year’s Draw will take place on Saturday 23rd January at the Rathcline Dinner Dance in the Radisson Blu hotel in Athlone. Prizes are as follows: 1st prize - €1500, 2nd prize - €750, 3rd prize €500, 4th prize €200, 5th prize €200, 6th prize €200, 7th prize €100 and 8th prize €100. Tickets cost €10 and are available from executive members and in local businesses. With the move to senior football this year, the club will need even more income so it’s crucial again to make this draw a success.

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to Mary Rice, The Abbey, who was last Monday’s winner of €376 in our 50/50 draw. This Monday’s draw will take place in Clarke’s Bar at 9pm. Envelopes only cost €2 and are available in all local businesses.

Yearly Subscription 50/50 - Our 50/50 draw which started a year ago has proved to be very successful. We have given away over €26,000 in prize money since the draw began. We are now giving people who live abroad or away from town the opportunity to be in with a chance of winning and supporting the club. A yearly subscription costing €100 will include membership for the year along with a chance of winning an average weekly prize of €400. The first date for the subscription envelopes to be rolled out will be this Monday 11th January. If anyone is still interested in subscribing after this date you can do so by contacting a member of the executive, messaging us on Facebook or emailing pro.rathcline.longford@gaa.ie Your support would be greatly appreciated.

AGM – The Annual General Meeting of Rathcline GAA will take place on Sunday January 31st at 5pm in the clubhouse. We are hoping that there are people within the parish who would be willing to take on some positions within the executive.

Rathcline GAA Comedy Talent Show – On Saturday 13th February the club are putting on a talent concert which will include some comedy sketches including “Old Men Grooving” along with some other great talent acts from within the community. The show will take place at 8.30pm in St. Mary’s Parish Hall. It promises to be a great night’s entertainment not to be missed!

Longford GAA – Well done to Denis Connerton and the Longford team who booked their place in the O’Byrne Cup semi-final as they beat Wicklow in Pearse Park. Next weekend is a big weekend as the Dubs come to town on Sunday for the semi-final in Pearse Park at 2pm. We would like to wish Denis and the squad the very best of luck. The U21 Hastings Cup team drew with Leitrim at the weekend with our own Shane Kenny scoring 1-03. Best of luck to them when they face Offaly next Saturday at 2pm in Leo Casey Park, Ballymahon.
